I have extensive training in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and have been using it in my practice for over 15 years. It is appropriate treatment for children ages 2 through 8, but I often use components of it with older children, as it is a very effective therapy. I have come to evolve a DBT Integrated Play Therapy approach to treat children with trauma dynamics and emotional dysregulation issues. Allowing them to learn to stress map their bodies and learn to self-soothe. In addition, the child is regularly validated and self-esteem can grow and improve.

15 years of experience working with children of all ages, primarily between 5 years of age into teens. Art and play therapy work well with estabilshing rapport and having the child/teen feel comfortable and trusting of the counseling process and with me in order to be able to work together. Art ranges from carving and sculpturing to painting and building. Art therapy doesn't require eye contact or having to engage with me, allowing the child/teen to process information in a matter that works for them. Brief therapy with weekly sessions at the same time also contributes to a successful therapuetic outcome. Like art therapy, play therapy incorperates many forms of activities that promotes grow

Many therapists share they use play therapy in their practice with children, but have not taken further training on its use in therapy. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, which means I completed 3 years and 3000 additional hours of practice after licensure, clinical supervision, consistent continued education courses, and significant focus in at least two play therapy evidence based practices. I utilize Child Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy, Digital Play Therapy, and Prescriptive Play Therapy to address children's needs in addition to creative arts therapies (Drama Therapy, Art Therapy interventions).
