What if I don't know where to start on my healing path?
I offer a free 20 minute phone call to get started and assess if we are a good fit.

A limited number of adjusted rates slots are available for on going sessions.
How do I know if my child needs Play Therapy?
Play Therapy is effective as preventative mental hygiene for children going through major life transitions, such as the birth of a sibling, change of home or school, or change in parental figures within a household. Play Therapy is also evidenced based practice for treating signs of maladjustment from past events and transitions. Signs of distress are individual to each child, but may include aggressiveness, irritability, changes in sleep, toileting, or eating habits, inability to focus, defiance, nervousness, isolation from peers, anxiousness, or regression in development.
No matter where your child is in their development, Play Therapy can help instill such positive traits as self-confidence, personal responsibility, and self control by using play, the primary language of children. Through play, children work through areas of inner turmoil and try out new expressions of self. Trained Play Therapists support a child's self discovery by employing techniques that enable children to embrace their full range of emotions in a safe and compassionate space.
