Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. At Thrive Counseling- we utilize play therapy as a research supported modality in working with young children. Play Therapy with children is very different from that with adults as c....

I try to create a space which is welcoming and kid-friendly. Children communicate best through play and it's through play therapy that children's emotions are fully expressed. Whether parents are going through a divorce or a child is simply having difficulty relating to friends in school, the therapeutic setting is helpful for giving kids the tools that they need to feel good about themselves and to succeed in life.

Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

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 email@example.com or 877-606-6161.

I have been working with young children (ages 2-11) very closely since 2003. I am the Early Childhood Expert for a very well known private child development care provider company and I've been providing play therapy services and training for other therapists in play therapy for many years. Play therapy allows me to see and understand what is happening for young children in their lives, minds and hearts. Through play therapy, young children are able to "work through" what is bothering them in the presence of my unconditional acceptance and delighted reflections of their expressions and experiences in the play room. I work closely with parents of young children as a part of the process.
