As a parent, you want your child to live a happy and healthy life. You want them to be able to grow up to live out the life that you envisioned for them. You dreamt of a life where they would have a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted childhood.
But right now, you don’t see your child living their best life. You see them struggling and you worry about them making friends, tackling life’s challenges, and being able to come out on top. You worry that your child will not have the skills needed to navigate all that life holds for them.
Parents don’t be discouraged, you’re in the right place.
Here are Mind Works we believe that every child deserves to reach their fullest potential. We believe in helping children feel capable and confident, while working with parents to give them the tools necessary to support their children.

WHAT IS PLAY THERAPY?
Play therapy is a theoretical model where a trained play therapist uses play to help a child express their emotions, increase and improve emotional regulation, and resolve psychosocial difficulties. Most often children ages 3-12 are treated using this therapeutic model of treatment.
Play Therapy can help your child with the following concerns:
- Anger Management
- Developmental Disorders
- Academic and Social Development
- Physical and Learning Disabilities
- Conduct Disorders
- Grief and Loss
- Social Skills
WHAT TO EXPECT
The first session is the intake session that is designed for parents only. Here you will meet your therapist to discuss and define your counseling relationship. Your therapist will gather information about your child, biological, psychological, and social history, and how this is impacting your current situation. You and your therapist will also discuss treatment goals moving forward and begin setting up appointments for your child.
Our goal is to help you feel supported and understood. At Mind Works we strive to include parents as partners in the process. We will set up a feedback session over the next 5-8 weeks where you and your therapist can discuss progress, continued treatment goals, while providing parental guidance and support.
Give us a call to make an appointment, we look forward to hearing from you.
