Maintaining a healthy, long-term relationship is challenging when faced with life changes. miscommunication, and conflicts. 

It also makes happiness elusive.

When a family member has problems the whole family suffers, especially when it involves a child or adolescent.  Therapy can help the family identify the roots of the problems and guide the family to  solutions.

Two forms of Play Therapy I engage in are Expressive Arts Therapy and Sand Play Therapy.  Both allow children and adults to express  symbolically what they find difficult to express verbally.  Children and adolescents often try to describe what is troubling them. They struggle finding the words.  Adults may find words constraining or inadequate.

 Increase cooperative behavior

 

 Increase self-esteem

 

Develop independence

 

 Improve school success

 

 Develop confidence.
