To play it out is the most natural self-healing process in childhood.

About Us

We serve infants and toddlers, children, adolescents and parents of all identities and bodies.

We value

Our approach is grounded in neurobiologically informed principles that help increase regulation and relational connection. 

Play is the foundation for learning, relationships and emotional processing. 

We affirm all races, abilities, cultures, neurotypes, in all bodies. Our therapists operate from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive lens.

We believe

Understanding the underlying needs behind a  behavior, allows us to meet those needs in new ways. 

Safe relationships – where one feels valued and understood – is the primary indicator of resilience in the face of adverse experiences. 

Increasing internal strength will change behaviors from the inside out, which leads to longer term change.

Our Services

Play Therapy

Play Therapy decreases problematic behaviors, while increasing your child's internal strength and belief in themselves. All in the child's natural language of play!

Parent Support

Parent Support & Coaching provides you with tools and strategies for responding to parenting challenges, without seeing your child directly or giving your child a mental health diagnosis.


We provide tweens and teens support for social, emotional and behavioral challenges. We use creative and expressive mediums to allow for alternative means of communication.

Educational Consulting

We work with children, families and educators to support the social, emotional and behavioral needs of children in school and daycare settings so they can be most successful. This includes school observations, support and guidance with IEP meetings.

Parent Education Series

Parent Education Series is a monthly virtual meeting led by parent educator Mara Mulcahy, LICSW, designed to empower parents with tools for navigating various important topics along their parenting journey.


We run psychoeducational groups for children and parents addressing a variety of ages, and needs. Check out our current offerings, or let us know you are interested in a past group so we know to run it again!

Play therapy gives children a place to be in control, to gain a sense of mastery, and to feel important, while giving the therapist a window into the child’s world.
