Counseling services are provided for all ages and the therapy approach will vary depending upon the nature of the child’s issues and their age. Parents seek counseling for their children for a variety of reasons and some of these may be to address fears, anxiety, bullying, adjustment to a life change, behavior problems, or relationship difficulties. I work closely with parents to help them understand their child’s behavior and we work together to help the child be happier and more successful at home and school.
Young children benefit from a special kind of therapy to allow them to express themselves in developmentally appropriate ways. Play therapy builds on the normal learning and communicative process that help children express what is troubling them using toys, activities, and play. Registered Play Therapists (RPT) are mental health professionals that have specialized training and experience to work with children and have met specific requirements to be registered through the Association for Play Therapy

Introductions to Play Therapy
The playroom can still be a fun place for older children and pre-teens to work on their problems. Therapeutic games, activities, and creative arts and crafts help older children explore the issues that are troubling them in a developmentally appropriate way.
