Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

A parent is only as happy as their saddest child. It is extremely painful to watch our children suffer and be at a loss of what is going on or how to help them. I am a certified Play Therapist and work with children ages 2 and up. When a child is acting out that is a sign that something is wrong in their world. Play Therapy is the preferred form of therapy for children under the age of ten and it is highly effective for children suffering from abuse, neglect, bullying, low self esteem, divorce etc. Play was a child's first language and we use play in session to gain insight into what is going on in a child's world when they don't have the ability to put words to it themselves.
