Do you sometimes worry about your child ? Perhaps you’ve noticed that they seem sad or angry. Or they may not be getting along well with others. Perhaps they are being disruptive. Many parents feel this way. I use play therapy to understand the root cause of each child ’s individual symptoms and give children the emotional support they need to understand and validate their feelings. I help them develop coping skills that can make them happier and can help them build a happier, deeper bond with you.

A person can attain the ideal health through the proper balance in life. Our philosophy here at Balance Your World, Youth Counseling Services is based on the Ecological Systems Theory that explains how the fundamental qualities of individuals and their environments interact to influence how they grow and develop. We also believe that the whole person is made up of sum of it parts, if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be impacted. In this way, if there are imbalances (physical, emotional, or mental), it can negatively influence overall growth.
