Specifically, I utilize EMDR, hypnotherapy, play therapy , sand tray, and child-parent relationship format.
I have successfully helped children, teens, adults and families who have endured traumatic experiences, behavioral/anger issues or school/job issues. I also have helped individuals currently experiencing emotional pain such as anxiety/depression, hopelessness, self harming behaviors. It is my belief that people have the innate potential to free themselves of emotional difficulties. My goal is to provide the necessary tools and teach skills needed to overcome emotional difficulties and develop meaningful relationships with family and friends.

CBT, TF-CBT and play therapy are the main methods I use when working with children in therapy.
The scope of my therapy practice is based on the belief that children are growing, developing individuals who at times need assistance beyond their families and school structures to develop emotional and social skills, self confidence, and coping skills to handle stressors. Children are often more open than adults to change and I absolutely love getting to see them transform and grow. I work with children and adolescents ages 4 to 18.

I am a Registered Play Therapist and I currently serve on the board for the MS Association for Play Therapy .
Children often do not have the words and vocabulary to fully express everything that has happened or how it has impacted them. When given a safe and nurturing environment in which a child can feel comfortable expressing feelings and working through life's obstacles, so much can be positively accomplished regardless of what a child may be going through. I am passionate about meeting each child where he or she is at emotionally by providing a warm, caring, and non-judgmental atmosphere in order to allow the therapeutic agents of change to naturally take place through play .

Making the initial decision to seek professional help for you or your loved one can be intimidating. I’m the therapist for people that “don’t like therapy”. Many of the people I see are new to therapy, "didn't believe in it" or have had negative experiences with therapy in the past. They come in with doubts, questions and fears. I believe that everyone that walks through my door deserves respect. My ultimate goal is to create a safe place to explore the messiness of life in a comfortable, laid-back and non-judgmental space. Life can be difficult, but you don’t have to figure it out alone. You are welcome here.

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 Gulfport or for a Gulfport 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.
