Has there been a recent family transition, divorce or seperation? Are you growing more concerned for your child and their mental wellness? Do you feel in your heart there has been a disruption in attachment? We have worked with many children who struggle with behavioral and emotional outbursts, academic issues, attachment, trauma, and more. Many of their parents have felt stuck and are unsure of what to do, just as you may feel now.

Counseling gives your child the space needed to begin to process and work out their frustrations, anxieties, and sadness. Our therapists will work with your child and you as a parent to find sources of concerns and ways to address them. It may feel impossible now but your child can find true happiness. We will be with you and your child each step of the way, using the skills and techniques developed through professional training and experiences to guide and give you practical ways to respond to daily events. 

What is Play Therapy?

TrueSelf Counseling now offers play therapy for children in our Fort Worth office. Play therapy is designed to meet your child where they are, not in a stuffy, sit down for talk therapy kind of way. Instead, play therapy is based upon the idea that the best place to meet a child and to begin to help them to overcome struggles is though joining them in play. A licensed and trained therapist will use play therapy to help your child begin to relax and open up as well as develop and model responsibility, coping, and socials skills.

Play Therapy has been found to be incredibly helpful in helping children to process difficult family situations, traumas, fears, and also helps to reduce anger and anxiety around others as well as school. It is also a great way to gain self-assurance and confidence!
