Pediatric Therapy & Play Therapy

Well-adjusted and happy children are made, not born. As humans go through appropriate stages in their development, they encounter various challenges. This world is full of unexpected difficulties, many of them leave long lasting marks on a child’s emotional, psychological and neurological development.

“As children develop, their brains “mirror” their parent’s brain. In other words, the parent’s own growth and development, or lack of those, impact the child’s brain. As parents become more aware and emotionally healthy, their children reap the rewards and move toward health as well.””

Daniel Siegel, Child Psychiatrist, Author of The Whole Brain Child
