I use a child's natural language of play in therapy.
I frequently work with individuals and families with a wide variety of challenges. Some clients are simply looking to find a place that they can take a deep breath and be in a place to address things that they want to work on. While others have severe symptoms or complex issues that are frightening and overwhelming where they need help sorting out thoughts and feelings while learning how to manage and navigate the challenges. Each client is unique and so are their experiences so my goal is to tailor treatment to best benefit my clients.

Our close relationships, whether they be with family, friends or romantic partners, play a major role in shaping each and every individual. I have seen and experienced how these relationships can impact many of our life aspects, such as self-esteem, what we value, and how we determine the roles we play in everyday life. I have been intrigued by the impact that our relationships have on us after we have endured a traumatic event, and how so often it is not the event itself that we need to heal from but instead, the way those who are close respond to us when it feels like the world has been turned upside down.

Living life means dealing with challenging times. The good thing is that you don't have to face these challenging times alone. Everyone can use a supportive ear from time to time. Together we can cultivate a better tomorrow utilizing skills and techniques learned through therapy. Managing emotions is a skill just like learning to read or knowing how to do math. You just have to start by taking the first step. Sometimes the smallest steps in the right direction end up being the biggest steps of your life.

My job is to begin where you are and help you prepare for your next stage of change. I use an integrative approach, working from the inside out (objects relations, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, others) to support your process and movement. We all start with assumptions about life. Then life happens, and we have to begin again having been changed. Loss becomes growth as we embrace new and mature understanding of ourselves and life. I am a clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience working with complicated but interesting people who are addressing individual, relationship, life, and spiritual issues.

I believe anyone can benefit from therapy. Seeing a therapist means you were willing to ask for help in dealing with the overwhelming circumstances that sometimes come your way. We all face times of anxiety and depression, and a little professional guidance can help us not just survive these times, but can result in happier, healthier people for facing the trials. I particularly believe that giving this healing space to children is beneficial; allowing their experiences and emotions to be treated respectfully and resolved empathically can let them move forward and make better choices throughout the rest of their lives.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Elk Grove or for an Elk Grove play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
