Alexandra Hoerr | MA, LCPC

Child Therapist & Play Therapist

The frustration is real! Feeling disconnected and overwhelmed by a child’s behavior can leave a caretaker crying out for help. Parenting shouldn’t feel this out of control.

Play therapy and developmental brain research are the twin essential pillars when working with young children. Healing exists when there is an engaged, caring team working together to put the pieces back together.

It’s hard work but research has shown that helping your child now, while their brain is still growing, will reduce risk of regression, increase quality in learning, and will pave the way for a hopeful future.

To begin the work of healing in the life of your child please give me a call today. (855) 543-7687 x701 or shoot me a quick e-mail: alexandra {at}
