Child & Play therapy in San Diego.

Being a child isn’t always as easy as it seems…

It is normal for kids to have short-lived emotional reactions to conflicts and difficulties at home, at school, and in social situations. But what happens if your child’s sadness, anger, or fear does not disappear?

As a parent, you know your child best. Even if there is no clear cause for their changed behavior, if your child seems moody, sad, withdrawn, or fearful, he/she is telling you they are dealing with something they can’t handle alone.

Let us help your child find their smile again.

  • Insomnia or increased sleep
