As a Licensed Family Therapist, I realize that children face a variety of issues in their young lives which affect them. Divorce, loss, stress at home, fear, etc. often cause children to act our or misbehave. When children are in pain, they do the only thing they know how to do; lash out, act out, or get sad and depressed. Children don't have the capacity to understand their feelings and don't have the language to describe how they are feeling. In therapy with children, through art and play therapy, I help them and their parent/s to express feelings in a creative and safe way. Many times, working alone with the parents, I help them develop strategies for helping their child.

Similar to adult therapy, our therapy for young children is individually based. Our staff is specifically trained and certified for several forms of child therapy including play and art therapy techniques. Our relaxed and comfortable approach focuses on the child's strengths. This approach may often have the added benefit of increased self esteem in children, due to their increased self-awareness.
