Child & Play Therapy

Play Therapy allows children the space to express themselves and understand their own thoughts and feelings. Sometimes parents bring their child to therapy for behavior concerns. Young children especially, often do not know the words in order to express how they are feeling or what they are thinking so all we see are behaviors that may cause dysfunction in different areas of life. Through play therapy, I help children learn to express their emotions in healthy ways which naturally decreases problem behaviors. When children feel more at ease in their own skin and in the world, they are able to relax and participate appropriately in school, sports, extracurricular activities, family engagements and regular every day activities.
