To address your specific needs and goals, I utilize a variety of techniques and modalities such as mindfulness, guided visualization, art therapy, and play therapy .

If you respond positively to these questions, hope and help are at your fingertips. To support your needs, I provide a warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment that help you deal with your personal challenges. I have a special interest in working with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, parenting, co-parenting, and life transitions such as divorce or job loss.

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 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

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.

"Whether we know it or not, we transmit the presence of everyone we have ever known, as though by being in each other's presence we exchange our cells, pass on some of our life force, and then we go on carrying that other person in our body, not unlike springtime when certain plants in fields we walk through attach their seeds in the form of small burrs to our socks, our pants, our caps, as if to say, "Go on, take us with you, carry us to root in another place." This is how we survive long after we are dead. This is why it is important who we become, because we pass it on. Natalie Goldberg, Long Quiet Highway, walking up in America

In my practice, I believe we have two types of relationships: the relationship we have with ourselves, and the relationships we have with others. When you have been hurt by others, it may become more challenging to love yourself. You begin to think, “ What did I do wrong?”, or “They didn’t want me, so I’m not worth loving”.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

"When there's hope, there's a way"... I am an award winning author, international lecturer, consultant, and therapist for individual, couples, families, and children/adolescents, with a warm, non-judgmental and collaborative style. If your life is not as satisfying as it could be, and you have that secret wish things could be different, it may be worth trying to talk about it; sometimes a single meeting can make a difference and reconnect you with inner peace, fresh ideas, or a clearer, empowering direction.

Humans are social beings. In the caveman days, those who were separated from the pack were not able to survive. A primitive part of our brain longs to stay connected to others. Unsuccessful relationships can feel like death. Sometimes we repeat relationship mistakes. Other times, we withdrawal but isolation can feel like a vast dessert with no end in sight. Luckily there is another way. Being in a healthy relationship with another human being is often a vital component to happiness. As your therapist, I would like to walk with you on your journey towards becoming more connected.

Hi! If I have learned one thing in life it's that change is difficult, particularly without help. I offer the opportunity to work collaboratively through what's keeping you from living the life you always thought you would have. Therapy can help one let go of patterns and beliefs, often subconscious, that aren't working. And changing our assumptions about the world and improving our relationships can result in profoundly positive changes and a life worth embracing! I look forward to helping you realize those changes.

It may not feel like it right now, but change is possible. Through therapy, you can become aware of the unconscious decisions you are making each day that are unknowingly shaping your life. You may find that the unhelpful decisions all center around patterns meant to keep you safe. Together, we can work on increasing your sense of security and recognizing which patterns are no longer working. I am trained in EMDR, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Sensorimotor Therapy. These modalities can aid you in going deeper and effectively processing the patterns and traumas that are keeping you stuck.

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 Sunnyvale or for a Sunnyvale 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.
