I believe therapy can be a catalyst for important changes we want to make in our lives. I work with adults who experience symptoms of anxiety or depression, trouble with life transitions, individuals struggling with relationships and those who just want to learn more about themselves while moving toward a more pleasurable and purposeful life. Many of my clients seek to enhance their sense of self by unpacking their experience of trauma in the context of varying identities, family structures, and/or immigration experiences. I also work with children and their families who have experienced stress, life disruptions and trauma.

*For most efficient response, please click on "contact us" on our website and complete the inquiry form.* You're overworked, overwhelmed, stressed out parents who do everything for your kids but can't find the time or motivation to take care of yourselves. Family dinners turn into screaming matches and you can’t get your kids to look up from their devices. When your cell phone rings and you see the school is calling, your heart drops and you wonder, “What now?” No one seems to like each other and you’re just so exhausted. This isn’t the family you signed up for, and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get back on track.

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 Southington or for a Southington 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.
