We Are Selective With The Parents And Children We Work With...

In order to not waste your valuable time, money and effort, we are selective with which child-clients and parents we work with. We have found through experience that being selective with our clients is a crucial first step to ensure you get the results you want with your child. We want to ensure that you and your child have found the best counseling to help you!  
This Is Not For You If...
  •   You believe this is your child's issue, and you're not 100% willing to change your parenting. 
  • ​  You cannot commit to 4 Parent-Only sessions at the beginning of counseling.
  • ​  You're too busy or tired to do all the assigned work between sessions.
  • ​  The 'other' parent is not actively co-parenting with you, or believes counseling doesn't work.
  • ​  Your child is violent, self-harming or suicidal.


Who Am I?
I'm Kim McFarland
When I was 25 years old and fresh out of college with a masters degree, I started working with troubled foster kids.

Their situation was awful. It seemed like things could never change for them.

They couldn't say how they felt. They would isolate. They couldn't listen. They were almost unreachable.

They would scream at each other because inside they were hurting. They couldn't cope with all that had happened to them. All the change.

It made perfect sense why they were so out of control- they had been through so much. 

I felt helpless too. I felt so guilty that I couldn't do better with these poor kids! I felt like a failure as a new counselor. 

They were lost. And I was lost on how to help them.
And I'll Help You Find the Answers
One day, as I was trying to connect with these kids, this young-ish guy walks in smiling.

He plopped right down on the floor with them, picked up some toys and started playing and chatting away with these children. 

At first, I thought, "Oh yeah. Like that's gonna help...just play with them and they'll open right up, sure." 

But then as I watched, magic started to happen. 

As he played with them, and connected with them, these kids quickly fell under his spell: They calmed down; they came out of their shells; they listened with spell-bound attention, and he just chatted with them quietly.

In a few moments they were open, respectful and seemed like they felt better just about who they were.  

And then the guy just got up and strolled out.  He was like "Mr. Rogers" or "The Pied Piper of Kids", only in real life! My jaw just hung open...

And at that moment, I knew I wanted what he had. I wanted that kind of skill with kids that are having big problems. I wanted those results; and most, I wanted to be able to make kids feel like they belonged and were safe.

I took a chance and reached out to that counselor (a Registered Play Therapist) that day, and that decision changed my life.

Later, I went through the training, the supervision, and all the certifications to become a fully Registered Play Therapist- and later, a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor- a "teacher" of Registered Play Therapists.

I learned:

➤  How to help kids who were struggling

➤  How to nurture confidence and self-esteem in kids

➤  How to make bad behaviors disappear 

➤  How to make children feel deeply loved, respected and heard

➤  How to help a child have self-esteem, to be happy again

Later, it became my passion to teach parents how to use these same skills with their own children, and how to help their kids finally feel and do better. 

When kids feel better, they do better.
