As a Registered Play Therapist, I help children deal with a variety of concerns including anxiety, social skills, behavioral issues (home and school) and low self-esteem.
As a therapist, it is my belief that everyone deserves to have a safe empathic, non- judgmental environment to which they can begin to better understand themselves and others. Therapy provides the opportunity for growth and change and eventually, a better understanding of one's self. This process is a collaboration to discover the desired lifestyle and happiness we all want. I offer a non judgmental warm supportive environment to help my clients process and express themselves.

Are you currently going through struggles in life or hitting some obstacles? Well it's normal and it happens to all of us from childhood through adulthood. The important question is, how are you coping? Sometimes without being aware of it, we develop destructive coping mechanisms by masking or shoving things down. As a therapist of 24 years, I can help guide you, your child, teen or family in learning new, healthier tools to live a more functional, enhanced and fulfilling life. And improve relationships too! If you are looking for effective help and support through a troubling situation, allow yourself to reach out.

Sometimes we just need a band-aid to get us through a rough patch, and other times a deeper dive into long-standing patterns and struggles is the right focus - both are valid approaches! Choosing the right therapist is an important step, so let's chat about questions you might have and make sure you get the right fit. I work with individuals, couples, and children, and from time to time I also offer group workshops. I have specialized training in EMDR, Play Therapy , and have over a decade of clinical experience. I am currently an LPC Board-approved clinical supervisor as well as an adjunct professor in Loyola's Counseling program.

I utilize Play Therapy with children because Play therapy is to children what counseling is to adults.
I would describe myself as an intuitive, and nurturing therapist. I provide non-judgmental counseling filled with unconditional positive regard, and I focus on my clients' overall personal growth and wellness, not just the identified problem. I believe in incorporating the healing power of play and laughter into counseling regardless of client age. I also concentrate on helping my clients to acknowledge their daily progress and to challenge their beliefs about their need for perfection. I am a dedicated therapist and I believe that all of my clients and their needs are unique and worthy of respect and individualized treatment.

Is your family ready for something new? Change is scary, but you are not alone. I work with children, teens, and couples to help them create healthier ways of being. I meet clients where they are to create a gentle, nurturing space where they can experience true healing through insight and self-compassion. I am experienced working with trauma and attachment-wounds. I take a trauma-informed, culturally-relevant, attachment-based approach to therapy. I also leverage my expertise in childhood trauma and in Emotionally-Focused Therapy (considered gold standard of couple's therapy) to support couples in reaching their relationship goals.

The clinical name for this work is EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, which is the treatment of choice for those afflicted with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).We will use Art to communicate and express deep feelings. Children respond well to this type of treatment.

Children do not process experiences in the same way that adults do; they play ! Therefore, I primarily utilize Child-Centered and Cognitive-Behavioral Play Therapy in my work with younger clients.
Life can be difficult for children and their parents. I have experience in both clinical and school settings working with children who experience anxiety, low self-esteem, peer issues, behavior issues, and adjustment to life events. Parent collaboration is essential to a child's growth and success in therapy, because you know your child best! I enjoy working with parents on creating structure, building a positive relationship with their child, and facilitating change.

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 New Orleans or for a New Orleans 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.
