Child Therapy
Is your child:

  • Withdrawn?
  • Angry and raging?
  • Having difficulties in school?
  • Irritable?
  • Having unexplained physical pains?
  • Acting out?
  • Fighting with peers or siblings?

These symptoms can be an outgrowth of anxiety, depression, or another issue. I can help.
Ways I work with a child include:
  • Play Therapy
  • Talk Therapy
  • Kimochis
  • Playlistening

I work closely with your family on identifying desired goals for your child and outline methods by which these goals can be met.   

Based on your child's age and developmental level, I will use either predominantly play therapy or talk therapy or a combination of both.

What is Play Therapy?

Various forms of play (art, play-dough, games, puppets, figurines, and more) are used to teach skills, increase emotional awareness, uncover insights, and work toward goals.  

Throughout therapy, the involvement and active support of parents in the treatment process is crucial.

What is Playlistening?

Playlistening is a powerful intervention that comes from a Parenting by Connection framework and developed further by Hand in Hand Parenting.

“Play is a child’s work.” 
–Jean Piaget (Swiss developmental psychologist)
