(At this time I am not accepting new clients).This life is not always easy, or joyful, or what we expect for ourselves and our children.

I am here to be that witness for you or your child. I have worked with adults, and children and their caregivers for over 15 years in the human services field. Whether you are struggling with past trauma, attachment, anxiety and stress, or the struggles of just being human, I am here for you.

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 Omaha or for an Omaha 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.
