Parent and Child Interaction Therapy

The relationship between a parent and child is one of the most foundational and influential relationships one will have in their lifetime. The interactions are so interwoven into the fabric of the child’s being that having a healthy dynamic can change the trajectory of a child’s life.

It is normal to have challenges in any relationship, especially with children. Developmentally they are learning to be independent and figuring out where and how their voice and opinion counts.

Parent and Child Interaction Therapy is evidence-based and teaches parents, through coaching, how to increase the child’s sense of comfort, security, and intimacy while also navigating the challenges of discipline and setting appropriate boundaries.

Therapy for Trauma

Sadly, trauma is a part of some children’s stories. It is important to stress to your child that it is never their fault. Trauma can be experienced through abuse or neglect, death of a loved one (including pets), school violence, bullying, medical ailments, or natural disasters.

Children can experience deep emotional pain, fear, separation anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. Children can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of safe family and friends and bounce back with resiliency. However, in some cases the trauma effects can be long lasting or maybe the trauma is too big for the family to deal with on their own.

In these circumstances, the support, guidance, and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

Family Therapy

Our family affects who we are and who we become.

We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.

It is so normal for families to struggle from time to time as the family adjusts to the world happening around them.

I offer support during life’s challenging moments to re-establish balance, tranquility, and connection in the family.

Play Therapy

I have seen children who have dealt with stress and tension from many different sources including parental discord, divorce, sibling difficulties, grief, domestic violence, abuse or neglect, foster and adoption transitions, school violence, and bullying. I accompany children on their journey toward emotional health through offering tools and coping skills. I utilize an array of modalities within the play therapy umbrella to support your child. It is important for me to meet your child where they are at in their process and techniques including trauma informed play therapy, art therapy, sand tray therapy

What is Telehealth?

Family Harmony Therapy exclusively offers telehealth services.

Telehealth allows me to provide therapy to clients via live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere you have a computer or smartphone and in a location that is private.

In ways this option is super convenient, no need to go anywhere, no need to worry about that runny nose, no need for a babysitter, etc. In other ways, inviting me into your home, via the computer, is deeply personal and I hold that with great sensitivity and can provide options to help lessen the intimacy if requested.
