What We Believe
We all have experiences and relationships that shape us as individuals. Sometimes, those experiences and relationships can create emotional pain and barriers in our lives. At Kid Talk, we believe that through exploration of these experiences and relationships, we can help you overcome the barriers in your life.
Not only are we passionate about creating healthy individuals and families, we are equally passionate about helping parents be strong and healthy caregivers to their children. We can help provide a deeper understanding of your child and learn new ways support your child through their growth and development.
A child uses play as their natural language to express themselves. Through this language of play a counselor can connect with a child in the child’s natural language. With the support of the counselor in this safe emotional environment, a child can face the issues that are creating emotional pain or behavioral changes.
The counselor and parent work as a team to help address issues that brought the child to counseling. As a parent/counselor team, we can help your child feel empowered to overcome struggles or circumstances such as divorce, separation, or traumatic experiences. Caregivers will also receive the tools and support to continue to help the child thrive at home within the family.
Although we focus on children, we also want to help adults. We specialize in trauma and helping adults overcome disruptions in their lives. We have specialized training in utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) to help overcome traumatic experiences. These can include childhood experiences, fears, and anxiety in certain situations.
