About

When our children's hearts have been broken, our hearts break, too. Parents often struggle with knowing how to care for a hurting child: when or how much to comfort; when or if to discipline, how to set appropriate boundaries,, the list goes on. The child's behaviors can be challenging. A parent's own unhealed wounds get triggered. Then, there's the parenting guilt! It can be overwhelming. We understand and we are here to help.
Parenting a child who has been through a trauma or unwanted transition takes courage, stamina, wisdom and support! We are Family & Children's Counseling Services and we want to help families heal play and love.
We would love to speak with you about how we can help your family access skills and inner resources to thrive. Read our bios online www.HealPlayLove.org. Visit us online to see our Therapy Team! Directed by Melinda Haynes, MA, LMFT 102308. 800-430-4490.
