  • Certified Parent-Child Interaction Therapist (PCIT)

PCIT is an evidence-based treatment for young children with behavioral problems. PCIT is conducted through “coaching” sessions during which the parent wears a “bug-in-the-ear” device through which the therapist provides live coaching on skills to manage the child’s behavior. PCIT can be completed within 12-20 sessions, though treatment is not time-limited. PCIT is recommended for children 2-7 years old.

  • Theraplay Level 1 Practitioner

Theraplay is an evidence-based child and family therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement. It is based on the natural patterns of playful, healthy interaction between parent and child, and it’s personal, physical, and fun. Theraplay interactions focus on four essential qualities found in parent-child relationships: structure, engagement, nurture, and challenge. Theraplay sessions create an emotional connection between the child and caregiver, resulting in a changed view of the self as worthy and lovable, and of relationships as positive and rewarding.
