Every person is unique in his or her needs. We offer a variety of services to best meet the needs of each individual. After an initial intake session, we will determine what service, or combination or services, will best meet those needs.
What We Provide
Individual Counseling We offer individual counseling to clients of all ages. Counseling works best if there is a trusting and positive relationship between counselor and client. The first few sessions of counseling are used to determine what your concerns are, what treatment goals are appropriate, and if the counseling relationship will be productive. Each client comes into counseling with their own concerns and priorities. We will work to give focus to your goals and establish that positive relationship. If our approach is not a good match for you, we will assist you in finding a counselor that can better fit your needs.
Play Therapy Play therapy is most appropriate for children two and half and older. We use an integrated approach, meaning we will tailor interventions and techniques to meet the needs of each child. Please see the Play Therapy page for more information.
Theraplay®* Theraplay differs from traditional play therapy in that it involves the child and the child's parent(s) in each session. The sessions involve multiple activities that are a combination of structuring, nurturing, challenging, and engaging. The activities are designed to promote attachment between the child and parent(s), as well as self-regulation with the child. Please see the Theraplay page for more information.
Family Counseling Individual counseling for one member of a family is not always the most effective treatment. If needed, we will recommend one or more family members to have sessions together. Each family is unique, so interventions used will be determined based on the need of the family.
Parenting Consultation We offer parenting education and consultation. These sessions will allow parents to openly share concerns about their child, and learn how to implement strategies at home. At times, this is recommended in conjunction with other services.
