We’ll help you uncover the story beneath your child’s challenging behavior, so you can respond more proactively vs. reactively to your child’s needs. We want to help you become your child’s own best “therapist”—a therapeutic parent.
Therapy is very different for kids than adults. Children have a limited ability developmentally to directly communicate their feelings and needs. They often don’t have the words or insight to capture why they do what they do. Children tend to engage in therapy more readily and openly through the language of play.
That’s why we specialize in collaborative, attachment-focused, play-based therapy that includes art, movement, and music. We speak “kid.” While it may look like we’re just having fun, we’re actually using our therapeutic lens to understand and translate your child’s triggers and reactions into meaningful feedback and practical interventions in session and at home.
You’re an essential part of the therapy team! We value your input as an expert on your child and will engage you in the process every step of the way. We’ll learn together what your child needs to work through difficult feelings, develop new coping skills, and build healthier, more rewarding relationships.
