Parents' Corner

We believe just coming to therapy for one hour out of the week is not enough for a child to grow. We believe parents hold an essential part of the therapeutic progress and that the language learned in therapy and the coping skills should be used at home, too.

That’s why we created the Parents’ Corner; so parents can feel involved and act as a bridge of healing between therapy sessions. We will teach you the language we use, the coping skills we teach, and therapeutic activities that are a fun way for the family to bond at home.
