I have extensive training in Play Therapy in the individual, family, and group setting.
Have you become increasingly concerned about your child's behavior at home or school? Do you worry that your child is struggling with day to day functioning? Are their behaviors difficult to understand and manage? Does the smallest thing seem to trigger your child? If so, you are not alone. We can work through these issues together. Childhood is a difficult time and creates unique parenting challenges as well. I specialize in working with children and families during these difficult times in order to restore a sense of peace and understanding for not only the child, but the entire family.

I love children, and especially appreciate the opportunity to work with young children and their parents. I believe that when a child is struggling with some type of emotional or behavioral issue, it is important for them to have a safe place to discuss their concerns and feel that they have someone "on their side." My office is filled with toys and art projects to help any child feel safe and comfortable.

"Not everything that weighs you down is yours to carry." You have been carrying around your burdens for a long time with no end in sight. You feel tired, worn out, hopeless. You might wonder if things can ever get better. I believe that they can. I believe that counseling can give you the tools to manage the stresses of life. You might be weighed down by fear, sadness, grief, loss, or the past. Together, we can make these things just a little bit easier to manage and help you move toward the life you want.

Larry Zier & Associates is a pediatric therapy clinic focused on the treatment of children with autism, sensory integration disorders, ADD/ADHD and learning and emotional challenges. We follow a relationship-based, developmental approach to therapy, DIR/Floortime. This approach is built on the belief that development occurs within the context of the parent-child relationship. From this point the child develops the capacity to self-regulate, share attention, be reciprocal, explore and learn.

Life is a journey. How often have you heard that? As we find our road through life, we all need inspiration and guidance. Having an outside perspective to navigate that journey can help us view our path through a different lens. It is my goal as your therapist to create a safe, supportive, and accepting environment for you to share your story. I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for therapy. Whether it's learning coping skills, practicing mindfulness, or just having someone to talk to, I get it. Life isn't easy and you don't have to tackle this journey alone.

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.

If you're looking for play therapy in La Vista or for a La Vista play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
