Additional Therapy Services

Do you feel like experiences pass you by? Do you feel like many thoughts are swimming in your head while you are trying to have a conversation with someone or pay attention in class? Do you feel like you are moving so fast through your day that you forget to breathe? Do you feel like the emotion you are feeling at any given moment will last for an eternity?

Research has shown that daily mindfulness practice has positive effects on reducing the impact of stress in people's lives that may be due to work, school, family, grief, feeling out of control anxiety, and depression.

Our therapists have been trained on how to incorporate this into their own daily practice and can assess clients on an individual basis to determine need for utilizing theses strategies within the individual therapy session.


Do you feel out of sync with your child? Do you want to connect better with your teen and preteen? Do you want to help your child feel more connected to you? Does your child benefit more from doing rather than talking? Does your child need help with regulating emotions, peer relationships, self-esteem or with developing a sense of who they are?

Theraplay is an experiential based therapy that can be implemented in a group setting or with the family, depending on where the needs of the child are. This mode of treatment is a therapist directed form of playful engagement that works to enhance one’s sense of self, provide opportunities for shared joy with others, improve affective and emotion regulation and increase attunement with others.
