Child Therapy & Counseling

Stephanie Legendre, LPC-S, Registered Play Therapist

Child Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor Stephanie Legendre is committed to enhancing the lives of children by focusing on a child’s strengths to meet his or her individual needs.

Stephanie uses the following types of therapy for children:

Play Therapy
Children are not able to process emotions like adults can in counseling sessions.  Play therapy is effective because it allows the child to communicate through play and resolve conflicts in a nonthreatening way.  Play therapy bridges the gap between concrete experience and abstract thought.

Filial Therapy
Filial Therapy is a type of play therapy where the parents are present in the play therapy session to help parents learn ways to be the therapeutic agent for change.

Theraplay is an attachment focused therapy that helps children and families enhance their relationships, increase self-esteem, positive engagement, and trust in others.  It is especially helpful for foster/adoptive children, children with regulation difficulties, and children with insecurities and distrust in others.

Child Parent Relationship Therapy
This is a 10 session model working with parents and children to help enhance their relationship and reduces problematic behaviors.

Child counseling services include:
