Ask any parent what their hopes and dreams are for their child and you will hear different answers– “To be happy” however, is likely the top of the list. My name is Carmen Isais and I am the program director and lead clinician at Life Compass Child & Adolescent Therapy in Davis, CA. My focus for clients is helping them maintain a solid connection to themselves so that they better create stronger bonds in their relationships. And more than anything, to be able to live a happy and harmonious life. Through the tools of play/art therapy, practical coaching, and psychotherapy we help children/adolescents heal, find vitality and grow.

Challenges we work with include behavioral issues, peer relationships, chronic illness, adjustment struggles, attachment issues, trauma, depression-anxiety and issues of divorce. We create a personalized approach for clients that include Art Therapy, Sand Tray activities, Play Therapies, Pediatric Hypnosis, Behavioral Re-direction, and CBT skill building.

Adolescent work includes distinct modalities and approaches. Through our work together we can help your child to learn new coping skills, boundaries, enhance the parent-child bond, and equip you with strategies to take home with them and into their daily lives. If you have any questions or would like a free 15 min phone consult, please contact me directly.
