Are You Worried About Your Child?

Are you hoping to do things differently than your parents?


Sometimes consultation or therapy is just the right level of support to help you make the changes that you are striving towards. Support is available for pregnant or parenting single parents, couples, and co-parents.

Are you looking for help for your child?


Is your preschooler shy, worried or angry?  Does your baby cry inconsolably? Does your child seem to be developing differently than other children?  An assessment  is a good first step, and will help to determine whether play therapy will be helpful.

Are you getting frequent calls from school?
