"We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Love Play Grow to anyone in need.

They are the best child therapists we could have asked for. Our needs were fully met and our expectations have been exceeded."

Jessica, LPG Client

the LOVE PLAY GROW Approach


We start by recognizing and celebrating the inherent strengths within each individual and family. Our therapists observe and identify the positive attributes, talents, and coping mechanisms that are already present.


Acknowledge and address challenges and weaknesses in a supportive and non-judgmental manner by creating a safe space for children and families to express their concerns and vulnerabilities.

Build SKILLS where it's HELPFUL

We work collaboratively with children and families to develop and enhance coping mechanisms, communication skills, and emotional regulation tools based on strengths & challenges.

What should be expected during the initial session?

The first session is for parents/caregivers only and is an information-gathering session.

The initial session is where the therapist you’ll be working with will gather lots of background information about your child and family.

Things like family history, child developmental history, and background. It’s also your chance to ask the therapist any questions.

*Parent sessions MUST be done with BOTH parents if both are alive and involved in the child, teen, or young adult's life. We understand getting two parents in the room at the same time is very difficult and are flexible in meeting virtually or in our office. Children CANNOT attend these parent sessions.

The Initial Intake Session is just for whoever has custody of the child, teen, or young adult.

What are sessions like after the initial session?

New client onboarding consists of four sessions in order to determine the best treatment plan.

The second and third sessions are for your child and we refer to them as assessment and diagnosis sessions. What the therapist is really doing is looking for strengths and weaknesses in order to develop a treatment plan.

The fourth session is a parent follow-up session where the therapist will discuss with you what they believe is occurring, what they think would be helpful, and how they would recommend moving forward.

Every child, teen and adolescent, adult and family are different, so sometimes children are seen individually, sometimes they’re seen with their parents, or sometimes they’re seen in groups, it all depends on what we see in the new client onboarding sessions.

What ages do you work with?

We work with kids, teens and adolescents, adults, and families across the lifespan, ages 3+ for everything from ADHD, learning disabilities, OCD, anxiety disorders, depression, behavioral concerns, parenting issues, divorce, sibling issues, etc.

What will the duration of therapy be?

Your therapist will discuss with you at the fourth session, Parent Follow-Up, what they recommend in terms of frequency and duration of treatment.

How long are sessions?

All sessions are 45-50 minutes long, and at the beginning of our relationship will often occur once weekly.

Once progress has been made, we will consult you to determine collaboratively if a decision to reduce session frequency is beneficial.

Any decisions made involving scheduling will be made with you, with the understanding that your time is precious.

Do we offer evening hours?

Yes, because we work with children, teens and adolescents, and families we primarily work evening hours.

However, there are only so many after-school hours in a week. We do our best to accommodate everyone’s schedules but it can be challenging. We do have therapists who offer weekend hours as well.
