Are you concerned about your child’s behaviors? Does your child show strong emotions that are difficult to navigate? Do you find yourself becoming like your own parents, something you vowed never to do? Are you more frustrated with parenting than enjoying the process? Has your child endured a recent trauma? Is your child adjusting to two different households? You, your child and family are not alone.
Child counseling is a crucial time of working with your child skills to improve: selfesteem, challenging behaviors, social interactions, enhance problem solving abilities, cope with strong emotions such as anger, sadness, and the emotional response of anxiety, create healthy boundaries, establish goals that will encourage them to be more motivated, express feelings and thoughts in healthy ways, and learn healthy thoughts versus unhealthy thoughts.
Child therapy is for the child while also being for the parents and family. Through this process, we work closely with parents to help them learn: skills to manage stress, how to increase positive family involvement, tools to promote healthy communication, and tools for behavior modification. Our goal is to help you as a parent learn techniques that will provide positive outcomes for your family.

Whether we choose Play Therapy Techniques, or more traditional age appropriate talk therapy, we offer you and your child tools to transform thinking and behaviors at a critical and foundational stage of your child’s development
