Rebecca Esser, MA, NBCC, LPC.

Clinical Therapist

501 6th Ave. Suite 8, Rochelle, Illinois

Through the use of play therapy, I work with children and parents in creating a safe environment for them to express themselves freely. Free play allows children identify and work through their feelings, and allows parents to gain insight into presenting concerns they have have. Play therapy gives children the ability to use their imagination which often times leads them to indicate struggles in their own lives. If your child is acting out, angry, withdrawn, regressed toilet or sleep habits, are fearful or anxious, play therapy can help - and you, as a parent, will learn how to conduct that specific play, through the we do with your child.
