We are eclectic in our approach,
using Play Therapy and Talk Therapy

We have been helping individuals and families like yours for almost 20 years. We help rebuild and reunify families by teaching coping skills and better communication skills to children ages 3-18, adults, and families.

We help children, adolescents, and adults learn how to understand, control, and share their emotions appropriately, as well as make better choices. We can assist parents in developing strategies to help your child manage emotions, improve behavior at home and school, and help families get along better.

We also use play therapy with children and adolescents who have a hard time appropriately expressing themselves and talking to people about what is troubling them.
