Does your child need support with any of the following?
Sensory Processing Sensitivities
Highly Sensitive Children/Shy
does your child struggle with big emotions?
is your child having trouble at home or at school?
are you worried about your child's self-esteem?
I provide a warm, loving, and compassionate space for children to freely express themselves. My goal is to work closely with the child's parents and any other important relationships (teachers and other helping professionals) in their life. Together we will create a web of support for the child. With the use of play therapy, your child and I can process their challenging emotions and learn skills to cope with these difficult feelings. One of my favorite parts about supporting children is hearing about how they begin to use the skills they learn in our sessions out in their everyday life. It is very rewarding when a child learns and adapts our play therapy and is able to express themselves in a healthy way. The therapeutic relationship that I create with each child, builds a foundation of safety and trust. When a child feels safe it allows for healing and learning to unfold. I am here to support you and your child, making sure to highlight their strengths and work on their challenges in a fun and loving way.
What is Play Therapy?
Play is the way that a child communicates with the world because they have not reached the developmental stage where they can identify and process their feelings on their own. Since a child's natural language is play, when given a safe environment, they can begin to metabolize and process their feelings through play therapy. They can learn how to identify their feelings and gain skills that they can use in their everyday life whether at home or at school to support themselves when these feelings arise.
