Play Therapy for Kids - YES, WE CAN DO THIS ONLINE

Play therapy is a way of creating a healing environment which is:

  • Child-focused

  • Completely accepting

  • Predictable

  • Safe

  • Fun!

We have a variety of therapeutic games and art projects which we can initiate and play with children as part of online relationship-building and therapy. Knowing the child’s history and using skills honed over years of study and experience, we meet the child where he or she is, and can "play through" issues that have led to anxiety, depression, or behavioral concerns. We are finding that young children need shorter sessions online...and that's okay! We also are working more than ever with parents to create a therapeutic team.

Individual "Talk" Therapy via Teleconference

We offer individual counseling for tween, teens, and parents. Our therapists are trained in a variety of different treatment modalities, including specialized techniques like DBT and CBT, which we tailor to the needs of each individual. Most clients meet online for their therapy appointments weekly. The length of treatment varies tremendously from 6 weeks to 3 years for others, depending on what each client needs and wants.


Family Therapy

The most efficient way to resolve relationship issues within a family is often to have all of the players in the room or online with the therapist at the same time. Our therapists will often work with some or all family members individually, then bring them together to discuss important issues that involve the whole family. 


Parent Coaching

​We're here to help and we can accommodate your timing now that we are all online. Many parents just need a few sessions of education and encouragement to turn around discipline problems with their children. Because parents need time to practice new skills, most parent coaching appointments are scheduled bi-weekly or monthly. Often parents just come on an as-needed basis, as they learn skills and situations evolve.
