I am a Registered Play Therapist. Counseling children is different than working with adults. Children have not yet developed the areas of their brain associated with language and communication that adults use in typical "talk therapy" counseling. Play is the language of children, and through their play they are able to process their problems, such as divorce, loss of a loved one, behavior problems, trauma, anxiety, depression, or other difficult situations. Because play therapy is at a child's level, it is less invasive and less threatening. Children might not even have the words, thoughts or feelings to verbalize their experiences. Go to to learn more

Piper Walsh, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Mission Viejo, CA

Raising your children can be a rewarding and joyous experience. Still, parenting comes with unique challenges and often frustrations, at every stage of development. I help parents learn not only what works, but also how to consistently implement change. Together we work on appropriate expectations, setting limits, and developing strategies to solve problems as they happen. I also concentrate on discipline, approaching it from a natural consequence viewpoint, rather than as a punitive measure. After all, the goal of any external discipline should be that the child eventually internalize it and discipline themselves. I look forward to assisting you: 949.370.4726 or
