What We Do
We specialize in a variety of areas that are focused on helping children, families, and individuals navigate the challenges, struggles, and relationships in their worlds. Our services include:
Being a kid in today’s world is hard. There are expectations to meet, rules to follow, changes happening. Children deal with stuff like worry, divorce, anger, sadness, trauma, or a variety of other stressful life events! Through Play Therapy, we help children learn how to better understand and cope with difficult situations, emotions, behaviors and relationships in a way that fits their developmental needs. They learn new, healthy behaviors rather than their previous acting-out behaviors. We also work with you, the parents who know your child the best, to help your child and the family to heal.
Family therapy provides an opportunity for family members to improve communication and resolve conflicts. It encourages collaboration and understanding among the family members as they address family stressors and communication concerns and relationship issues. All family members feel valued as they share and explore their own thoughts and feelings, learn how to better understand and validate the needs of one another and heal
the family relationship.
We all experience times of stress, sadness, anxiety, difficulties coping with daily life, medical illness or loss, like the death of a loved one, the impact of trauma, etc. Individual therapy sessions can help you respond to
challenging situations with healthy coping skills, reduce anxiety, build self-esteem, learn how to take control of your life, and improve functioning. We provide a safe, non-judgmental setting in which you can openly express
your feelings and concerns. We are here to help you heal.
