Are you looking for a therapist who can help you and your child connect better with one another? How about helping them to connect better with their teachers, friends, family members and most importantly, themselves? Are you hoping your child can learn the skills needed to manage their big feelings and overcome challenges in the different environments in which they interact? Through the use of Synergetic Play Therapy™, Leah will blend the therapeutic power of play with nervous system regulation, interpersonal neurobiology, attachment, mindfulness, and therapist authenticity to help your child learn new ways to view themself as they move through the world, and in turn, develop new ways to respond to the big, and little challenges, they may face each and every day.
