Children and adolescents are often faced with numerous struggles as they learn, grow and become their own individual selves. Bullying, parent's divorce, grief or loss, peer struggles are just some of the various life events and stressors that cause our children and adolescents to experience emotional and psychosocial difficulties. Play therapy promotes the power of play and enables children to honor their own developmental level. After a safe and trusting relationship is created between the therapist and client, client's are able to freely express themselves and growth, healing and empowerment can begin. In play therapy, children and adolescents will learn to better understand their emotions and learn helpful tools for how to effectively and safely express their thoughts and feelings.
The experiences in our lives shape us and define our relationships with ourselves and others. In individual psychotherapy, children, adolescents and adults are given a safe space to both honor and explore the behavioral, emotional and social stressors that arise throughout their lives. Through self-discovery, mindfulness and promoting our own strengths, individual counseling can help identify and heal the stressors in our lives, such as: anxiety and depression, work/life balance, trauma, familial struggles, or grief and loss. Being honest with ourselves and giving ourselves the space and time to embrace our struggles, that is when personal growth, healing and empowerment can begin.
A PCI Evaluation is a structured interview designed to assess the attachment styles between parents and their children. Additionally, this evaluation assesses a parents' internal representations of their relationship to their child or children. Typically, a PCI Evaluation is requested by a Guardian ad Litem, Child Legal Representative, or a Caseworker when there are concerns regarding the safety and/or relationship between a parent(s) and child(ren).
I offer a free phone consultation for all new clients.
