*CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* If you've made it to this page, it's likely that you may be looking for support. Maybe it is that your child is exhibiting escalations in behavior. Maybe it is that they struggle with impulse control or are quick to blow their top. Maybe it is that an anxiety or fear is impacting their daily life. Beyond the support for your child, it may be that you desire support, resources, and ideas around how to parent an escalated child. Whatever the reason may be, as a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist, I can work with your child to help them learn to regulate their nervous system. I also will work with you to equip you with strategies both for moments of dysregulation and moments of regulation, enabling you to help your child feel confident in themself that they can do hard and scary things. As I believe it extremely important that the parent(s)/caregiver(s) are included in the therapy process, I offer a 20-minute caregiver consultation that is included in the price of each 50-minute play therapy session. For those who hope to see quicker results, I offer a play therapy intensive. This model includes an intake session, 12 sessions with the child, and 4 sessions with the caregiver(s) over the course of two weeks. This allows for the therapy process to take place over a condensed time period, which may allow for improvement of desired goals on a faster timeline. If this is something that you may be interested in, I recommend that you contact me to discuss how an intensive might fit for you and your child.
