Child Therapist

Melissa Davies, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

1125 Ralston Ave., Defiance, Ohio

Young children require a therapist who is sensitive to their needs and able to connect with them on their level. As a child therapist, I use multiple methods of play therapy which allow the child to feel comfortable and safe. A feeling of security is essential for children who need to address difficult and often scary feelings. I work with parents/guardians extensively to learn their hopes for treatment and to measure progress as treatment continues. I provide practical feedback and ideas for changes in parenting and discipline which help achieve treatment goals.
