Child Therapy

Jennifer uses play therapy to help children feel heard, understood, and accepted. She uses the therapeutic environment and therapeutic relationship to learn about who the child is, how the child views him or herself, how the child views others (parents, siblings, friends, etc.), and how the child views the world. Jennifer takes her time to get to know each child in order to develop a strong therapeutic bond that becomes the vehicle for change. Her thorough understanding of the child and family assists in informing the treatment process and therapeutic interventions that are implemented during counseling. Jennifer engages her child clients in play based interventions that are fun, creative, and informative.
