* TELETHERAPY PROVIDED AT A SLIDING SCALE* The self can be the source of much mystery and turmoil. Unexpected life events, interpersonal troubles, and difficult transitions can leave you feeling lost. Sometimes we can lean on our community and other resources, but it can be tough to find a safe space to explore our true needs and feelings. In a world where everybody has an opinion, an unbiased perspective can be hard to find. Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning.

I work with the human psyche! WHETHER LIFE IS ON FIRE OR WHEN PAIN IS TOO STRONG TO BEAR OR IF YOU LOOK FOR PERSONAL DISCOVERY. My ideal client comes in in order to learn about how to tune with his or her psyche. Clients, in depth work, learn about the inner and outer relationships and how to connect with the things that lies underneath. I see clients who are looking for discovery of what exists beyond the behavior and their actions and who are willing to dive into learning about the forces that drive them.

I work best with people who have had difficulty with relating to their emotions, resolving past suffering, spiritual abuse, chronic illness, somatic issues, finding meaning, and navigating life transitions.

My clients would describe me as genuine, caring, and accepting. I work with clients who have experienced trauma, micro-aggression and several messages from others and even from themselves to "get over it" or "get it together." My clients face challenges in finding fulfillment in their life and connecting with the world around them in a meaningful way. They are desiring a life in which they are able to fully embrace joy in the daily things and in their relationships. They want to be able to feel all their feelings without judgment and stress.

"The pain is there; when you close one door on it, it knocks to come in somewhere else..." (Dr. Irvin D. Yalom). The process of psychotherapy is uncovering the pain, either developmental, situation specific or just existential, and working through it within the bounds of a trusting, accepting and empathetic therapeutic relationship. Throughout the process, I will help you uncover and become comfortable with your authentic self, while bringing into the consciousness some of the themes and motives that have unconsciously ruled your life and became a part of who you are.

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 Monrovia or for a Monrovia 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.
