About

Navigating parenthood can be hard & sometimes we need extra support. If you are feeling overwhelmed or watching your child struggle with things such as anxiety, fear, anger, big emotions, tantrums, big transitions, & difficult behaviors, you’ve come to the right place. I work with children of all ages & their grown-ups, utilizing a collaborative play-based approach to healing. I am passionate about family work & utilizing the therapeutic powers of play to help children naturally work through their problems. Play is the “language” in which children communicate in a non-threatening way. Just as adults "talk" it out, children play.
I have received specialized training in Play Therapy and have almost a decade of experience working with children & families in a variety of professional roles. I specialize in family concerns/conflict, emotional regulation/expression, behavioral issues, relational difficulties, transitional issues, aggressive outbursts, social skills, and difficulty coping.
Curious about play or my other approaches to therapy, including my work with parents & older children/young adults? Please visit my website, www.newgrowthsta.com/melissa-vollhardt, to learn more about my practice & counseling approaches. I am also available for a brief, free consultation to discuss your concerns & answer any questions you may have.
