Child and Family Therapy

Sometimes as a parent you agonize over your child's behavior, over how to help him, over whether she is developing normally, over guilt and worry about the family environment. Your child seems to be changing, and you are not certain that it is for the better. Your child seems troubled, not quite himself, not doing her best. At times he seems too fearful for his age, she seems too angry for what is going on, and your child's words and behavior are asking for help. You are hoping that someone can help you help your child.

In therapeutic work with your child and your family, we work toward restoration of normal development of your child. Play therapy uses your child's natural medium of self-expression to access his or her strengths and developing wisdom. Family therapy with parents and/or your whole family mobilizes the strengths and wisdom of your family members. Normal development is restored when all members of your family can enjoy each other and each stage of life.
