One of my specializations is Sandplay, a non-verbal form of self-expression that can be useful alongside the more traditional verbal, creative arts and play therapies.
As a parent it can be upsetting and worrisome to see your child struggle with school or family life. You really would like to see your child confident and capable of handling the difficulties of everyday life as well as building their resilience to cope with challenges in the future. You may be wondering how to help your child or where to find someone to provide that help.

Based on my ample work experience I feel comfortable working with adults or with children using conservative talking therapy as well as more creative approaches such as art or play therapy .
Most of us, if not all of us, come to a point in life where we need to regain our balance and redefine our goals. I know so because I have seen my clients, friends, and myself in such situations. By working together with you, I can help you to focus, mobilize your inner strength and establish new strategies to overcome problems that have become apparent. Topics that I handle (but I am not restricted to) are grief and trauma coping, relationship or family issues, anger management, and cultural or generational conflicts.

I have been working with children and adolescents for over 30 years in the greater Bay Area. My primary practice focuses around facilitating youth through difficult transitions, school related stresses, anxiety, peer relationships, and self esteem. Additionally, I support young adults and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, sexual orientation and difficult life transitions.

I employ therapeutic techniques from Person Centered, Mindfulness, Narrative, CBT, Play and Sand Tray therapy, and others as applicable to yours or your child's situation.
Sometimes life presents us with challenges, and therapy is an opportunity to evaluate what is beneficial, what we might want to modify, and what direction we want to go. As a licensed therapist, I am here to support you through our therapeutic relationship. I provide a safe, non judgmental and unconditional environment to explore. Together, we gain insight into troubling issues on cognitive, emotional and experiential levels. I can partner with you to help you move from contemplation to action. I can collaborate with you individually, as a couple, as parents, or as a family. View more at my site celytherapy.com

I offer children play therapy .
I'd like to support and help you going through the difficult moment you are experiencing right now. Life is no doubt challenging but wanting to have a better and quality life should never be too much to ask. In my practice, I work with different populations, including children, individuals, couples, and families. I have many years of experiences helping children and teens from age 3 to 17 with different kinds/levels of issues and challenges, and often times the parent-child relationship or family dynamic issues are also revealed and addressed during the process. I also help couples to end their battles and manage their disagreements

When possible, I love to use play , sensory based experiences, and art in my work.
I believe children and teens can learn, grow, and thrive when they have coping skills, feel empowered, and practice self-care. My goal is to encourage youth to learn who they are and how to advocate for their unique needs. I specialize in working with neurodiverse, gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) youth and their families. I encourage youth to use their strengths and interests in order to grow, heal, and cope. Building self-awareness, such as understanding their own sensory processing and asynchronous development, is an important part of my work with youth.

"What one person has to offer to another, is their own being, nothing more, nothing less" - Ram Dass. My therapeutic approach is a strength-based perspective that focuses on a person's innate potential rather than pathologies and shortfalls. Consistent with this approach, my role as a therapist lies not in solving problems but in helping clients examine inhibited issues and biases, identify practical solutions to their problems and progress towards deeper wisdom. I have worked with clients of various ethnicities, addressing a range of mental health issues, relationship problems, and life transitions.

“I just don’t know what to do anymore.” How familiar does that phrase sound? Perhaps you feel like you’re losing control of yourself, losing the people you love, or are burnt out from work. Perhaps you feel paralyzed by shame. Everyone has dreams, goals, and aspirations for their life, but, somewhere down the road, “life” has a way of making these dim. The great news is that your story doesn't end here! I believe we can create new paths for ourselves—and I would like to walk alongside you in yours.

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 Mountain View or for a Mountain View 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.
