THERAPY FOR CHILDREN, PARENTS & FAMILIES

We truly enjoy working with children, parents, and families!  At Kaleidoscope, it is our goal to help all families be healthy and happy! Addressing social and coping skill issues, behavioral and interpersonal challenges early in a safe environment will allow your child and your family to thrive.

We specialize in using creative, engaging ways to help children and parents learn coping strategies.  We use talk therapy but we also use other modalities, such as play, art, and yoga.  We are creative, energetic, and engaging.  During both individual therapy sessions and groups, children and parents engage in creative activities, play, and therapeutic games which allow them to integrate and practice coping/life skills, strategies, and techniques that they can use in their daily lives! Activities help children and parents to express feelings, implement new skills and put into practice the skills they work on in therapy.  We believe it is important to have fun as you acquire new skills!
