Have you ever wondered, "What is going on with my child?" "I don't know if this is normal behavior?" "I am at a lost and don't know what to do?" Hi, my name is Richard, and I am a therapist who works with children as young as 3, preteens, teens, and adults. I help people work through their emotions, anxiety, and behaviors that lead to feeling stress. Play therapy and regular talk therapy offer a way to explore these questions in a creative and safe space.

I integrate play , art and narrative therapies in order to help clients identify, process and cope with their feelings and experiences.
Have issues at home or school left your child depressed, angry or withdrawn? Many times, behavior and mood changes may be your child’s way of communicating that they need help processing the things going on in their lives. When adults are stressed and overwhelmed, other aspects of our lives suffer (e.g. job performance, relationship, etc). Children & teens experience emotional stress in similar ways. Failing grades, self-harm or behavioral issues at home and school are signs that something deeper may be happening. As a parent you may feel helpless. You've tried all you know but nothing works. You just want it to get better!

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.
