We provide a safe and nurturing environment where you can begin to explore barriers, and yourself in order to become your ideal self.

It is through play that children communicate the feelings and thoughts. They often times do not have the words or are able to understand certain life situations in a way were traditional talk therapy is effective and children and their caregivers can often feel defeated and uncertain. We utilize a variety of play therapy approaches, however we come from an Adlerian and child-centered perspective. The way in which the Adlerian theory is used in play focuses on the crucial C’s and the belief that all people no matter what their age have an internal motivation to reach their fullest potential. It is when difficult behaviors arise, or traumatic life events occurs when caregivers often reach out for help. Because children develop at their own pace and have very different understand of life and it's events than adults we focus on help the child feel connect, capable, that they count and courageous. We do the by allowing the child to lead the therapy sessions and explore their world while the therapist gives voices to their emotions and experiences. It is in learning and internalizing these feelings as children that they will be able to more easily overcome future life stressors. We also utilize parent and child play therapies such as filial play therapy and thera-play to assist in attachment and parent coaching. Finally play therapy and expressive art therapy are much intertwined and we often use expressive therapies in conjunction with the play and sand tray. *For more information contact the office or visit our blog.
