ROBYN GOBBEL, LCSW

IS THERAPY RIGHT FOR MY CHILD?

Every child deserves to feel safe, loved, supported, and connected. By providing a safe environment and a deeply respectful, child-centered, and friendly approach, children will be able to process, heal, and grow in whatever way they need to, parents will feel supported in their parenting approach,

and families will regain a sense of connection to each other.

 

"Play gives children a chance to

practice what they are learning"

OF COURSE, IT'S NOT ALL BAD!

You also know the side of your child that is sweet, caring, empathetic, curious, and creative.

I believe that! There is no doubt in my mind that there are no bad kids, only those looking to communicate an unmet need. In our work together my hope is to figure out what that unmet need is, ways to meet it in healthy and constructive ways, and for your child's strong-willed personality, sensitive nature, mental health or neurological disorder to be reframed as a gift to be explored and celebrated.
