Denise Costa, BA, MD Child & Play Therapist



Child & Play Therapist specializing in separation/divorce, grief and

Childhood should be a time of care-free wonder but sometimes kids are challenged by events that can be traumatic. Many children experiencing separation/divorce, grief and bereavement can navigate the course without long-term effects; others may experience these life events in a way that might affect their current and future mental well-being.

Play Therapy is not traditional therapy. Using play, I can offer the child an opportunity to express themselves the best way they know how. A child's ability to verbalize their worries, fears and sadness is very unlike an adult's and so, I have learned to interact with kids in
a way that is most natural to them. I help support kids through the separation and divorce process beginning in the early stages until they are comfortable with the new life they have been asked to live. I also support children through grief and bereavement. From diagnosis
of a terminal illness of a loved one (including parents, close relatives and family pets), to the funeral process and beyond, your child will have a safe place to express and work through all of the emotions that come with grief.
