Child CounselingTherapy Through Play
Mon - Sat: 8AM - 7PM
We are open and providing tele-health services via phone and online sessions. We also still have in person options available at our office location while adhering to COVID 19 social distancing guidelines.
Because children may not have the words to express how they think and feel, we work with children in a special way. Through the therapeutic use of play, we are able to help children explore and resolve issues while encouraging healthy behaviors. We use toys, games and books to aid in building rapport with children and assisting with the expression of feelings in therapy. We strive to include parents in the process to effect behavior change and symptom relief.
After consistent treatment using play, parents typically report that their child is more social and outgoing, has increased confidence, seems to be in a better mood, and is better able to manage difficult emotions. We help children in the following areas:
- Divorce of parents
- Social Issues
- Family conflict
- Temper tantrums
- Behavior issues
- Sexual acting out
- School problems
