Are you wanting to change old patterns, self-limiting beliefs, and habits that have been keeping you from being your authentic self? I can work with you through therapy, using an integrating approach (mind, body, spirit). When it comes to counseling I believe that approaches and techniques play a large part in the therapeutic process, however, it begins with building trust between the client and counselor. It is always my goal to create a safe place for empathy and understanding.

I have advanced training in play therapy , which provides a way to communicate with children/adults who find classical "talk therapy" to be difficult.
Through great pain comes better awareness and understanding about ourselves and the world around us. My journey as a counselor began during my experience with war deployments, which inspired my search to find ways to help others who are hurting. After completing my Master's degrees in Couples and Family Counseling, I have worked extensively with the court system, with families in need, and with individuals of all ages. My other passion in life is speaking and learning more Spanish. I offer therapy sessions to adults, children, families, and couples. I am a certified hypnotherapist.

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 Greensboro or for a Greensboro 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.
