Play therapy is the best therapeutic model for small children because it helps them: 1. Become more responsible for behaviors and develop more successful strategies. 2. Develop new and creative solutions to problems. 3. Develop respect and acceptance of self and others. 4. Learn to experience and express emotion. 5. Cultivate empathy and respect for thoughts and feelings of others. 6. Learn new social skills and relational skills with family. 7. Develop self-efficacy and thus a better assuredness about their abilities.

Cynthia Orrego, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

I specialize in the assessment and treatment of young children as well as adolescents. In working with children in therapy or as part of the evaluation process, I strive to provide a warm, caring and supportive environment. Building rapport and trust is as important as providing effective treatment approaches across different developmental stages. My experience in both educational and clinical settings, has helped me realize that when working with children one needs to implement a systems approach. Getting the family and school on board with treatment and working together as a team is the best way to make positive and lasting changes in children's lives.

Children many times do not even know how they feel about their circumstances and often have difficulty communicating it. Even if they did know many times they won't share it with a parent out of fear. Therapy helps a child overcome difficult emotions, learn how to regulate them in a healthy way, and provides valuable feedback for the parents. There are specific tools used that provide a child the ability to express their feeling accurately.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact or 877-606-6161.

Children express their worries and concerns differently than adults do. It takes a specialized approach and skill-set to communicate and work effectively with them. I am a Registered Play Therapist with more than 25 years of experience working with children and parents. Through play therapy I help children learn to express themselves and develop the skills they need to overcome a variety of challenges. I work closely with parents to give them the tools they need to support and guide their child in a positive direction.
