As a certified child centered play therapist, I am trained and enjoy working with children ages 3 and up. Using play therapy for children is like talk therapy for adults.. it is the best way children have to communicate their struggles and work through their feelings. A critical part of working with children is keeping communication going with you, the parent. Part of my treatment approach includes regularly scheduled consultations with you. I have designated play therapy space at my Syracuse and Rome offices, and look forward to talking with you about your child.

Understanding and helping kids, parents and families is an area of specialization for me. Actually, I've written two books and multiple articles on this topic, taken a leadership role in developing mental health evaluation standards for kids in the state, given hundreds of workshops on doing this sort of work and do ongoing public education on kid and parenting topics (e.g., a blog at hecticparents.com and a weekly live parenting spot on WBRE-TV's PALive). Should you bring your child to me I promise to treat him or her as I would want one of my own kids treated and to be tireless in my efforts to understand, heal and advance the wellness of your child.
