Enhancing the psychological health and well being of adults, families with young children, adolescents and new parents during times of stress and transition.
Parent to Child and Therapy Associates is a private clinical practice focused on creative arts therapies and speech and language therapy for individual adults, children and families and teens. Effective communication is at the heart of what we do whether in reference to functional speech and language or the deeper work of understanding our behaviors, feelings and interpersonal relationships.
Our outpatient setting focuses on general mental and behavioral health, learning differences, developmental delays and family systems work.
We work cooperatively with our clients to develop an appropriate treatment plan and coordinate additional services as needed and on a case-by-case basis.
Our approach is child-centered, using art and play to support emotional needs and development, along with cognitive-behavioral coping tools. We share the learning and support with parents in a family-based model and offer communication with schools.
Who We Are
We are a team of Art Therapists and Professional Counselors. Our therapists have unique specialty areas — working with the youngest of children and families to older adults. We support mood and emotional needs, learning disabilities and neurodivergence, eating disorders, postpartum stress, family relationship dynamics, separation and divorce, and grief and loss issues. Several on our staff specifically focus on the LGBTQ community.
Visual art therapy is at the heart of what we do with the belief that images and creative processes help all of us to better understand and communicate our experiences, needs, and feelings.
