I believe that play is a way for children to communicate and that through directive and non-directive play children can work through many issues that they might be facing.

She has also supported families and couples that need assistance with co-parenting, blending families, and other communication or adjustment related issues. Some of the clients Stephanie has worked with have struggled with trauma, PTSD, ADHD, behavioral issues, anxiety, anger, and other relational problems. It is important to Stephanie to provide individual or family mental health resolutions that meet the specific needs of each client.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Wylie, TX provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Wylie build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
