Filial Therapy and Child-Parent Relationship Training

Filial Therapy trains parents in some of the very same techniques that Play Therapists use! Through the implementation of "special play time" at home, the parent becomes the therapeutic agent in his or her child's life. This approach is helpful both for parents who wish to strengthen their connection with a child and parents who are experiencing tension or power struggles in the parent-child relationship.

Benefits of Filial Therapy include-

  • Regaining control as a parent

  • Helping your child develop self-control

  • Effectively disciplining & limiting inappropriate behavior

  • Understanding your child's emotional needs

  • Communicating more effectively with your child

Parent Consultations

Confused or frustrated by your child's behaviors? Need a brush up on parenting tools and strategies? Or do you just want to learn more about your child's developmental level? I offer parent consultations on a variety of topics for parents of children ages 3-17.

Child Abuse Prevention

As an authorized facilitator of Stewards of Children, I am able to train concerned adults to recognize, respond to, and prevent child abuse. This training is a great opportunity for parent groups, neighborhood organizations, schools, and community centers. Trainings are hosted in the community.
