Play Therapy is a structured child therapy method that builds on the knowledge and usual communicative manner of children. Play therapy is applied for various emotional, behavioral, and social disorders with play therapy being used as a first intervention. Because children struggle with communicating their views and emotions--play therapy is a great method. With play therapy, Amy aids in supporting the child to learn more adaptive ways when there are cultural and emotional deficits. Amy believes the actual relationship created through child therapy can render a corrective emotional occurrence needed for healing.

It can be hard to be communicate with our children without our own emotions getting in the way. Sometimes our children just need to hear from someone else. Therapy can bridge this gap and provide an opportunity for parents and children to hear each other. I enjoy working with children and it is obvious to them when we meet. I let them set the pace and work to build trust so that you can work on your relationship with them and see improvement. Oftentimes, kids who are hesitant to speak to someone face-to-face will be ore willing to talk to a therapist online.

Utilizing play therapy techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, I assist young children in learning impulse control, how to anticipate consequences, how to understand and express their own feelings and good problem-solving techniques. Learning all of these skills helps children have positive relationships with peers and family, resulting in positive experiences at home and school.
