Welcome to Play Solutions INC.

Providing healing and support to children and their families

Our Mission

Every child deserves the opportunity to be valued,  to be 

nurtured, and to succeed in life. Through the use of a prescriptive 

approach, treatment is tailored to each child's unique needs, 

in order to provide effective therapy and support.

Teletherapy

Teletherapy is an option for children and families as an alternative to in-person sessions.  Services are provided through SIMPLE PRACTICE, which is a HIPPA-compliant and secure platform.  This service is reimbursed by most insurance companies and alleviates the need to travel.

Accepting Referrals 

(Please e-mail me to be placed on my wait list. (which varies). 

I am limiting new admissions depending on 

the age of child, complexity, and payor source.)

Please email for an intake packet
