Is your child acting out or struggling and is nothing helping? Sometimes kids have big feelings and as a parent, you want to do everything you can to help them. Therapy can help kids learn how to handle these feelings in an interactive way. Children's primary language is play and with play, I can help your child learn about their feelings, learn how to handle them better, and learn how to communicate them in a healthy way.
I am a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist, and a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor. Synergetic Play Therapy™(SPT) is the first research-informed play therapy model to blend together neuroscience, attachment/attunement, therapist authenticity, physics, emotional congruence, nervous system regulation, and mindfulness/mindsight. Using this model, your child will learn more about their emotional responses and learn new and healthy ways of expressing their emotions.
Parenting a child who is acting out, or struggling with their feelings can be exhausting! I will always invite you to take part in your child's therapy; however it is also possible to take it one step further and blend in parent sessions and parent/child sessions. These sessions can help you gain a deeper understanding of what's going on emotionally with your child and together we can discuss ways that will work for you to handle those tough behaviors.
