Birch Forest’s therapy programs promote each child’s development through a respectful, playful, joyful, and engaging process using the power of relationships and human connections to promote engagement, communication, positive behaviors and thinking.
Like in person sessions, virtual sessions are playful and engaging. The child and therapist will connect, play, explore and continue to make progress in the child’s natural environment. Parents can also use virtual sessions to connect with their child’s therapist.
Birch Forest’s expert clinicians are committed to providing services based on clinically validated practices, integrating social work and occupational therapy services as needed.
Children, like adults, can struggle with processing their emotions and communicating their needs. Child and family counseling focuses on therapeutic interactions and experiences that help children feel comfortable, safe and understood. From this foundation they can learn skills, resolve underlying conflict and process feelings.
Occupational therapists assess all areas of activity to promote health, growth, and development. They are skilled at observing, identifying, and developing play strategies and healthy habits for children and their families and building toward successful participation in adulthood. Babies, children and adolescents can benefit from occupational therapy.
A child’s success and well-being are significantly influenced by the quality of their relationships with parents, siblings, and other caregivers. We value the opportunity to work with parents regularly, and other influences in the child’s life as needed, to maintain the child’s progress. We support and educate parents so they can help their children heal and grow.

There are many options within psychotherapy and occupational therapy to treat your child effectively. We will align your concerns and your child’s needs with the clinical best practices best suited to them, and collaborate with you on a treatment plan.
Our primary goal is for you and your child to no longer need therapy services. We will work as hard as we can to reach this goal as quickly as we can. We often see this goal reached quickest when the parent(s) and caregivers can be actively involved in the therapeutic process and weekly sessions.
