Through the use of play therapy, I work with children and parents in creating a safe environment for them to express themselves freely. Free play allows children identify and work through their feelings, and allows parents to gain insight into presenting concerns they have have. Play therapy gives children the ability to use their imagination which often times leads them to indicate struggles in their own lives. If your child is acting out, angry, withdrawn, regressed toilet or sleep habits, are fearful or anxious, play therapy can help - and you, as a parent, will learn how to conduct that specific play, through the we do with your child.

Raising a child can be challenging! As parents, we experience a broad range of emotions when parenting our children - these can be anything from elation, pride and joy to anger, frustration and outright bafflement. Parenting is like being on a roller-coaster, there are plenty of highs and lows and no way of getting off until the end! As parents, we all understand and accept that with patience, good discipline and consistency, those difficult moments or phases will pass and will serve as an important learning opportunity for our children moving forward. Sometimes, however, those phases seem to have no end, and our children get stuck in a pattern of destructive behaviors. Let us help!
