Play Therapy

Unlike talk therapy for teens and adults, play is the language of children and a non-threatening avenue to communicate. Often, children have used up their own problem solving tools, and they misbehave, may act out at home, with friends, and at school. Play therapy allows therapists who specialize in play therapy, to assess and understand children's play. Further, play therapy is utilized to help children cope with difficult emotions and find solutions to problems. By confronting problems in the clinical Play Therapy setting, children find healthier solutions. Play therapy allows children to change the way they think about, feel toward, and resolve their concerns. Even the most troubling problems can be confronted in play therapy and lasting resolutions can be discovered, rehearsed and mastered.

PCIT

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based treatment for young children (ages 2-6) with emotional and behavioral concerns that places emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns. Children and their caregivers are seen together in PCIT. Most of the session time is spent coaching caregivers in the application of specific therapy skills. Therapy is coached from an observation room, using a “bug-in-the-ear” system for communicating to the parents as they play with their child. Concluding each session, together it is decided which skill to focus on during daily 10-minute home practice sessions the following week

EMDR

EMDR also known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing has been found to be very effective with a number of issues to include PTSD, anxiety and panic attacks. Clients have found significant relief in symptoms decreasing the need for extensive therapy. An initial assessment and history is taken to determine if this would be an effective model based on the presenting concerns. While recalling a disturbing event or fear, clients holds pulsers in their hands or listen to tones through ear phones. Focus is on both emotions and body sensations that go along with it, while gradually guiding you to shift your thoughts to more pleasant ones. EMDR can weaken the effect of negative emotions. Before and after each EMDR treatment, you then rate your level of distress. Disturbing memories frequently become less disabling with each session. The number of sessions vary based on complexity of trauma history and emotional distress.

Parenting

Through parenting sessions, the goal is to assist parents or caretakers to better understand core issues related to concerns with their child. Using age appropriate tools, we increase positive interactions and bonding, decrease stressors, work with personality and temperament, increase nurturing responses, promote child’s social competence, emotional regulation, positive attributions, academic readiness, and problem solving. The goal is to bring hope back to the relationship to increase active fun parenting.

Individual Therapy

Individual counseling provides an opportunity to work one-on-one for guidance and support to resolve an issue, recover from an upsetting experience, explore thoughts and feelings, examine beliefs and work toward making healthy changes. This model is used with teens and adults exploring the whole of the person to include mind, body, and spirit. There are a variety of therapy models that can be used during individual therapy to include CBT, DBT, EMDR, or Solution Focused Therapy based on client needs after determining primary goals for therapy.
