Does your child show signs of issues such as:

Low self esteem;

withdrawn behavior;

aggressiveness;

nightmares;

lying;

attention problems; 

difficulty with peers;

anxiety & fears;

separation problems;

coping with death;

temper tantrums;

adjustments to a new baby;

immaturity;

sibling rivalry;

misbehavior at school;

sadness;

poor organization;

adjustment to divorce?


Play therapy is a way to help a young child express their feelings and begin to solve the problems.

Regardless of the symptoms, there are three major goals of play therapy.  These are: improved self-worth, self-responsibility and decision making skills.

How Do We Get Started?

Initially parents come without the child for an intake meeting.  This gives us a chance to talk about your concerns, take a developmental history and decide the most pressing issues.

During the next session the child is introduced to the therapist and the play room (siblings can come too!)


Next time, parents come and attend the first 10 minutes of the session in the playroom with their child.  The rest of the time is spent with the child and therapist alone.


After five individual sessions with the child, parents and the therapist meet alone again to discuss a plan of action and treatment plan.
