    Does your child or teen struggle with expressing or controlling their emotions? Are they struggling in their relationships at home or at school?

    Growing up is full of big transitions and events, and these can be difficult to handle for your child. Children and teenagers don’t always express what they are going through the same way that adults do. Maybe your child is acting out at school and defying authority. Maybe they are isolating themselves from others. Your child needs counseling that is tailored to them!

    Clara has years of experience in working with children, preteens, and teenagers in a variety of different settings, including churches, in-home disability care, and community service. She uses play therapy techniques to connect with your child and provide help that is personalized to their needs. Clara believes that play therapy allows for her to speak the language of a child and create a safe space for healing.

    As a parent, you want what is best for your child. You may feel hopeless in your situation or like nothing that you do is helping them. There is hope! Clara will come alongside your family during your child’s counseling journey toward healing. She uses easy to grasp tools that can alleviate tension and help your child build strong relationships with their family and friends.
