Caring Hearts Play Therapy, MSW, LCSW, RPT-S, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Newport Beach
I help children and families heal through play therapy. Play therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach to therapy that is strategically used to help children express what is troubling them. Does your child or teen need therapy? Take the "Care Quiz for Children and Teens" for free. This tool helps parents understand the most common indicators for professional treatment for children and teens. The quiz will give you a clear recommendation about treatment, and is available on my website.
Your child has the ability to heal and I tap into his or her innate gifts so that they can achieve meaningful change. I do this through a complete assessment of each child I see to uncover your child's strengths and devise an individualized approach to treatment.
I draw on a variety of research-informed treatment strategies. I truly enjoy helping people, and I know therapy can transform lives. After fifteen years, I'm endlessly moved by the healing families achieve and for allowing me to be a guide to their success.
