Child Therapy

Stewart's Gift Child Therapy

The myth is that children are resilient, implying trauma does not affect them. However, the research is conclusive: children are survivors seriously affected by trauma. The externalization and true detriment may not be visible for years and, at times, decades. Childhood trauma is linked to behavior issues, mood disorders, personality disorders, interpersonal difficulties, suicide, disease, and shortened lifespan. Resilience is not necessarily innate; it must be created through trauma acknowledgment and processing. Children communicate through play: toys, art, movement, etc. I offer play therapy for children who have experienced trauma and need help processing and healing those wounded spaces in their hearts, minds, and bodies.
