Why Play Therapy?

Individual and Family Counseling
Individual counseling consists of a collaborative effort between an individual and one of our professionals.  Our goal is to provide an comfortable, safe, open, supportive, and confidential environment for you to address the issues that are concerning you. We also focus the individual’s immediate or near future concerns.

Family counseling focuses on the family’s dynamics, immediate concerns, and the near future.  We hope to build the bonds between the members of the family and bring everyone together.

Co-Parenting Counseling
A co-parenting arrangement allows both parents to share the responsibilities for raising their child or children that promotes cooperation, healing and growth. Co-parenting counseling allows each parents an opportunity to talk about the best interests of their children in a neutral environment and receive input and advice. We help resolve issues ranging from custody schedules to day-to-day parenting, and most importantly keep parents ‘on track’ when discussions drift from parenting issues to personal/marital issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment Program for Children with Sexual Behavioral Problems
Research shows cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most effective method for creating long-term reductions in sexual acting out behaviors in children. We offer an evidence-based treatment program that helps children and families learn healthy boundaries/rules for sexual behavior, impulse control, identify potential relapse factors, improve social skills, and increase emotion management abilities.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming, also known as EMDR, is a highly effective method of psychotherapy is conducted through a structured protocol.  Developed in 1987 by psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro, EMDR was designed to help individuals heal from unprocessed, unresolved trauma in their past. EMDR is the most researched trauma treatment to date, and is endorsed by the American Psychiatric Association and the US Department of Veterans’ Affairs and Defense as an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  In addition, EMDR is used by behavioral health professionals to treat sexual abuse trauma, panic attacks, phobias, eating disorders, addiction, and other mental health issues.
