For parents, we understand that you want your child to feel happy, healthy, and supported. At Concord Family Counseling, we offer a range of evidence-based interventions to support your child's emotional, behavioral, and mental health needs. One of the interventions we offer is play therapy, a unique and effective approach to counseling for children.

Play therapy is a type of therapy that uses play to help children communicate their thoughts and feelings, resolve conflicts, and develop healthy coping skills.

Our therapists use a variety of play-based interventions,
such as drawing, puppetry, and storytelling, to engage
your child and create a safe and supportive space for
them to explore their emotions.

We believe that every child deserves to feel supported and empowered. If you're looking for a caring and experienced team of counselors to help your child navigate life's challenges, we invite you to reach out to us. We're here to provide effective and compassionate support for your child's emotional, behavioral, and mental health needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Play therapy is particularly effective for children who may have difficulty expressing their feelings through words alone, such as young children or those who have experienced trauma. Our therapists use play therapy to help children develop emotional regulation, build self-esteem, and improve their communication skills.

The main way that children communicate and process emotions is through play, so most work in counseling is done with play involved. We also provide parent coaching and family sessions to support progress inside and outside of our sessions.

While confidentiality is important in child counseling, it's also important for parents to be involved in the process, especially for younger children. We involve parents or guardians to provide support outside of counseling sessions and to gain a better understanding of the child's home environment and relationships. In cases of suicidality, homicidality, child abuse, and elder abuse, we will have to involve the necessary resources to keep your child safe.

You should consider counseling for your child if you notice that they are struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, or difficulties with relationships. Counseling can also be helpful if your child has experienced a traumatic event or is going through a major life transition, such as a divorce or a move.

"Lydia has a heart for children. The oldest of four, she has always been the caretaker with a beautiful and healing heart to just make things better. My profession dictates that I hire and work with adolescent and family therapists on a daily basis. To be successful, you must be authentic and compassionate yet have the ability to hold firm boundaries and provide structure. Lydia is more than capable to lovingly provide the healing needed." - Carol

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Lydia in a professional capacity. She is down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor that she incorporates into her work with clients as appropriate. Lydia is a great fit for adolescents and is able to build trust and rapport quickly. She thinks outside the box which works great with the teens she sees in her practice. I highly recommend her as a therapist for teens!” - Amber

“Openness, kindness, and compassion are a few words I would use to describe Lydia. You can just feel that she really cares for each of her clients and gives them the space to be heard, which is sometimes a hard task for parents to provide for their children and teens at home. I would highly recommend sending your children and teens to see Lydia at Concord Family Counseling.” - Zavior
