A young child's words are expressed through play. Child Centered Play Therapy, provides your child a safe space to show us what they're feeling through play. We never expect children to sit on a couch and talk; their talk happens through play, both online and in person. We provide space for play to happen while engaging in a way that is therapeutic to the healing process. We believe that all children can benefit from learning to regulate, thus we have incorporated regulation skills into our play practice.
We work with children 2 yrs to 12 yrs old using Child Centered Play Therapy. We believe that children will naturally show us when they are ready for "talk therapy" We might bring in elements of play therapy as we transition them to talk therapy as young as 8 or 9. We follow the lead of the child.

The transition from being a child to an adult is not as easy as it sounds, and this time can leave young adults feeling anxious about the future. Being a teen, especially in today’s world, is full of challenges. Therapy can be a great space for teens and young adults to process in a safe, private environment as they learn to navigate what it means to be themselves. Whether your teen is dealing with a mental health concern like anxiety or depression, facing struggles of self-harm or suicide, looking for a place to explore their identity, or hoping for help with peer relationships, therapy is proven to make a difference in their lives.

Parent & Caregiver Support
We find that when we put parents and caregivers at the center of our work we see success within the whole family system. Parenting work is a huge part of our therapy. We believe that if we equip caregivers with the correct tools and practice they can lead their family into healing and balance.
Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity for growing into the healthiest of people.
A happy, healthy baby starts with happy, healthy parents. The journey into parenthood is one of the most life-altering transitions humans experience. Research estimates that perinatal mood disorders affect 1 in 5 birthing parents and 1 in 10 parenting partners. In therapy, we will create a space to explore your needs, openly discuss the highs and lows of parenthood, and develop the tools necessary to focus on your own mental health and wellness.
We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing.
