The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Helping to create life change and wellness in children, teens, young adults, and families.
Children use play to communicate what they may not have the ability or feel safe to put into words. Play therapy helps children learn to experience and express emotions, develop creative solutions, and cultivate empathy for thoughts and feelings of others.
Teens and young adults often struggle with self-esteem, behavioral, and relational issues. Too often they may also be dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, family conflict or change, substance use, self-injury, and/or abuse. Individual therapy can help increase insight, accountability, and solutions.
Parenting is the most difficult job and brings with it the most important responsibility we may ever face in our lives. Family therapy and parent coaching can help you develop healthy communication, boundaries, and improve family relationships.
Supervision helps us as individuals to learn, practice, and improve our skill level. The supervisory relationship offers a framework for problem solving, and helps one better attend to clients, while increasing skills and confidence.
