Service Descriptions

Child and Adolescent Therapy

I work with children as young as age 2. In my work with children and teens I utilize art and play therapy techniques, along side talk therapy. Art and play techniques assist children and teens in learning and utilizing words, along side their behaviors, to express their thoughts, feelings, needs and experiences. I will work closely with you and your child to facilitate and strengthen your child's growth and achievement of identified goals, as well as strengthen relationships and connections with others.
