 Are you looking for help with the problem behaviors of your child?  The Encouragement Center provides children and families the opportunity to resolve behavioral issues by providing a safe environment for children to learn to manage difficult issues.  Therapeutic assistance for parents to learn effective parenting skills is also available.  I work with parents to develop a plan for resolving issues as they arise. 

I am a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor and have found the techniques of Play Therapy to be effective with changing problem behaviors in children.  I have had the privilege of working with children for over 20 years.

The Encouragement Center has a separate room where children use toys, art, and sand play to develop the strengths necessary for resolving problems and learn more effective ways of interacting with others.  Play Therapy can help your child become responsible for behaviors, develop respect for others, and learn new relational skills with the family.

Research supports the effectiveness of Play Therapy with children whose problems are related to: domestic violence, divorce, death, relocation, hospitalization, chronic illness, physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and natural disasters.
