Play is the way we first learn to communicate with one another.  As much as we would love for our children to tell us exactly what is bothering them or causing them to act out, often times they do not even know. 

 

My goal is to create an environment that these children can feel comfortable in communicating their needs.  By using play, children will explore and express feelings they may not have consciously known existed.  I also believe in working alongside parents to ensure the therapeutic progress is being generalized into the home as well.
