If your child or adolescent has experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, is being bullied, is struggling with their self esteem, is a child of a divorce, has experienced a death or loss of a loved one, or is experiencing other emotional difficulties, individual counseling may be an important option.

Play therapy utilizes the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve emotional/psychological difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development. Kids may not have the language to express the emotions that are trapped inside, so there are creative modalities including art, sandtray therapy , therapeutic games, and music that can be the conduit of the healing process.
