I provide play therapy for children because it's through imaginative play in which the child learns about the world, relationships, oneself, and can heal. Play therapy provides a safe space for kids to work through difficult experiences without repercussion from an adult who is able to give them a sense of a increased control and experiment with choices in a big scary world. Children often times gain an increased level of self-confidence, reduced anxiety, improved ability to trust in adults and understand and regulate powerful emotions better which ultimately translates into improved behavior and performance in school.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Albuquerque, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it.
