Children process their feelings and learn about their world through play .
I work with adults, adolescents, and children. Often, as adults, we find ourselves stuck. You keep trying, yet things aren’t getting better. Usually, this means you have developed a self-limiting belief. Let’s talk. Together we can identify the root of the issue, develop new core beliefs, and create a plan to develop a more fulfilling life. Children and adolescents need a safe space and a person that accepts them for who they truly are, so they can express themselves openly. I focus on helping them see their true worth to enhance their growth and development, while teaching them skills to express emotions and cope with stressors.

Through play and talk therapy methods, we explore the causes of emotions and strategies to manage them better in the future.
"All behavior is communication" and my goal is to help parents, kids, and teens understand the emotions behind their actions. ​Emotions may be expressed through lack of motivation, aggressive actions, refusal to participate in activities, use of drugs or alcohol, self-harm or having negative beliefs about themselves. I can work with you and your family to learn healthy communication and coping skills to deal with today's world.

Over the years, I’ve spent more than 15,000 hours in play therapy with kids.
Being a mom is agonizing when your child’s struggling. You’ve done your best and don’t know what else to do. Love mixes with pain and it feels like your heart is breaking. Sometimes kids get clinging, tearful and whiny. Sometimes they get rude and disrespectful. Sometimes they meltdown because they can’t hold it together. Sometimes they’re anxious and sometimes they’re depressed. Whatever you’re facing, it’s hard. I remember. I’m a mom. I got the looks, the unkind remarks in the grocery store. It hurt. There were times when I lost my temper and felt the mom guilt. And I discovered a way to alter the course of our story for good.

Angie has been an Elementary School Counselor for 16 years. Previously, she worked with at-risk and abused children and their families at the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery. She specializes in Play Therapy techniques and believes children heal through play . She truely feels that the relationship built between a therapist, client and the family is paramount in helping clients feel safe enough to share their struggles. When things are too painful or difficult to explain, play is a safe way to distance yourself from the situation and begin to learn coping skills and move toward healing.

I welcome clients from diverse ages and backgrounds, including children through play therapy , teens, adults, and couples.
Struggling relationships, difficult transitions, and heavy losses can feel exhausting, confusing, burdensome, and at times, unbearable. Sometimes, we need a safe and confidential space where we feel supported, understood, and can learn to move forward. I approach counseling with the belief that you possess innate dignity and worth, and it’s my priority to help you feel heard and valued as you tell your story and share your struggles. As we engage with the experiences that have brought you here, I believe that hope and growth await you, and it is possible to live your life in the ways that you long for.

Play is a child's language and toys are their words.
Wouldn't it be nice if children and teens came with an instruction manual? Raising children can bring a roller coaster of emotions and challenges but you're not alone! As a therapist and mother myself, I recognize the impact that children and teens behavioral and mental health concerns can have on them and their families. Behavior communicates their feelings, thoughts and needs. When it becomes challenging and maladaptive it's important to connect with them and uncover what they are trying to express. I believe that you are the expert on your family and your participation and support is an integral part in the treatment process.

Does your child struggle with managing emotions? Are lagging social skills, anxiety, or acting out behaviors interfering with daily life? Are you feeling overwhelmed and at a loss for how to help? After spending 18 years as an early childhood educator in a local public school district, I transitioned to clinical therapy in order to work with families more directly in support of social/emotional skills and mental health. Counseling is a great opportunity for exploration and growth.

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 O Fallon or for an O Fallon 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.
