Healing Transitions serves all populations in various environments. Our group practice is unique due to its creative approach to counseling. We have a team of professionals with diverse mental health experience who are committed to each individual and family reaching their full potential.

- Play Therapy
Children are usually uncomfortable talking about their thoughts, feelings, and behavior. They don’t have the cognitive ability to view themselves objectively or to understand how others view their behavior until early adolescence. Play is a child’s natural form of communication, just as talking is an adult’s natural way to communicate.

Evaluations may assist clients in identifying problems that may be interfering with their everyday lives and personal relationships.
