Play therapy for children to help better understand their own ability to solve problems and find their potential.
From childhood through late adulthood, there are certain times when we may need help addressing problems and issues that cause us emotional distress or make us feel overwhelmed. Together we work towards growth by identifying the issues involved, establishing goals, and becoming increasingly aware of reoccurring patterns that prevent growth. As awareness of one’s fears, perception, desires, and strengths increase, we are able to make successful life changes. Self-awareness by becoming more honest with ourselves can initiate the authenticity that often results in healing, transformation, and fuller life.

) My post-graduate work was in Play Therapy .
Parenting is tough. Being a kid is tough. Being in relationship is tough. Therapy is tough and requires work. People do the best they can, with what they know, at any given time. When we know better, we do better. However, at times life is overwhelming, and situations can exceed one's ability to cope with them effectively. We are all part of various systems (family, work, community, school) and sometimes desire/require assistance in navigating those systems in a healthy manner. The ability to reach out for help is an act of courage and risk taking. Visit www.clbockwitz.com for further details.
