    Fostering Independent Play

    Dec 4, 2019


    With Therapist Bryana Kappa



    Does your child get bored easily? Do they have little tolerance for frustration? Does your child struggle to play independently without your constant reassurance? If so, tune into this week’s episode focused on how to foster independent play. Therapist Bryana Kappa helps us to understand practical ways to support independent play and realistic expectations for how much time moms should be engaged in play. We also discuss the importance of open ended toys and which toys promote create and imaginative play. 

    Bryana Kappa is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Redondo Beach, California.  She is endorsed as an Infant-Family Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist by the California Center for Early Childhood Mental Health.  She owns and operates South Bay Mommy and Me, a center for new moms with infants and toddlers birth-24 months, where she facilitates classes that promote the healthy development of babies, mamas, and their relationships.  Bryana has her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, and is a graduate of the Postpartum Action Institute. She is dedicated to supporting new moms with young children in discovering a deeper, more joyful connection to motherhood.  She is the mother to a sweet toddler named Matteo, and the happy wife to her husband Matt.
