Pregnant Women

Becoming a parent is a huge life event! Depression, anxiety, and the lasting impacts of trauma earlier in life can result in increased stress in pregnancy and parenting. We can help address mental health symptoms and support you to be the parent you want to be. We can support you throughout your pregnancy as well as once your baby is born. We specialize in addressing PTSD and supporting bonding with your baby.

Infants & Toddlers

We understand more and more about the emotional experiences of very young children. We understand now that stressful and traumatic experiences impact even the youngest children. All parents strive to protect and care for their babies. When things don’t go as planned, we can help with bonding and attachment, and support you in getting your baby back on track in their social and emotional development. This strengths-based approach supports parents in understanding their baby’s communication and needs and promotes healthy attachment and bonding. Whether your baby is having trouble with sleep, fussiness, behavior issues such as biting, or just seems to not be thriving in the way you hope, we can help!

Preschoolers/Kindergarteners

We support families with preschool aged children by providing clinic-based play therapy and parent support. If you are unable to make it to one of our four clinic locations, we may be able to come to your home! Play is the language of childhood. Just as children play for fun, children also play to express big feelings. Whether its related to a traumatic or stressful experience, or difficulties such as sadness, anxiety, or behavior challenges, we address children’s social, emotional, and behavioral needs by strengthening relationships and providing play therapy.
