Raising a human being can be difficult. On top of the everyday needs that children have, each child has their own unique personality. These personalities are in part encoded within their genes, and in part shaped by their parents, caregivers and living environment. It is the parent’s task to work with each child (and the child’s unique personality) to develop appropriate social skills and behaviors, learn life skills, and create healthy relationships.
Part of my practice focuses on children and helping them conquer fear, anxiety, and hurt caused in their life. This is done through a mode of treatment called “play therapy.” Being a Registered Play Therapist (RPT), I have been specially trained and supervised to help children build self confidence and feel capable of handling what life throws at them. Play therapy gives the child a chance to share their feelings through play, allowing them to feel more confident in the world they live in.
