Children express themselves and learn through the language of play. In order to connect with a child, we must be able to speak a language that they understand.   I have learned, over years of therapy practice and supervision, to tune in to what a child is expressing through their play. I provide play therapy that can help your child process events and learn important skills.

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.
Fred Rogers

Therapy may be appropriate for your child if they experience:

  • low self esteem
  • changes in appetite
  • difficulties reaching their full academic potential
  • worry or sadness that seem excessive or concerning
  • nightmares or disturbed sleep
  • behavioral trouble in school, community or home
  • difficulties connecting with peers or others
  • excessive anger or outbursts
  • divorce or separation, family difficulties
  • loss of a loved one, grief
  • abuse (physical, sexual, emotional)
  • difficulties in the process of being adopted or fostered
  • difficulties adjusting to living in a blended family
  • being bullied or bullying others

Family involvement is essential to successful therapy for children.  We will formulate a plan for family involvement in the initial sessions of therapy.


Additionally I offer preschool support in a variety of different ways.
