Description

Your child is struggling. Let’s find a solution that eases their pain and gives them (and you) tools to move forward. 

Sessions focus on learning coping skills, building resiliency, and exploring experiences and feelings in a safe, judgement-free environment. The use of Play and Expressive Therapy, as well as talk-therapy (for teens), allows your child to move through life’s challenges by promoting self-awareness and distress tolerance. 

You’re looking for solutions, and I’m here to help.
