Play Therapy

Play Therapy provides for children what talk therapy provides for adults, the difference is children use play as their means of expression when processing difficult emotions and  experiences.

About Carly

I love to work with children (12 and under), and early teens (13-19), to provide a therapeutic process that draws forth each client's inner-strength and resilience.

My Experience

Includes working with children and adolescents who struggle with most emotional and behavioral difficulties including:

I have also helped individuals work through a variety of circumstances:
