I use a variety of approaches in my work including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), EMDR, sand tray and play therapy .
Raising children can be challenging (to say the least!). As parents, we often encounter situations with our kids or adolescents that we need help navigating. I can help with these challenges. Finding a counselor who is the 'right fit' for your situation and your family is important. My goal is to make this as comfortable as possible. I provide an atmosphere of trust, support and acceptance which will allow you and your child to explore concerns in an emotionally safe environment. I'm happy to consult with you by phone to help determine the next steps your child and family.

Dance/Movement Therapy and Play Therapy are perfectly suited for children to work through behavioral and emotional issues.
I have been the leading provider of socialization groups for children with ADHD, Anxiety, and Autistic Spectrum Disorder in Monmouth County for the past 20 years. Every child can learn ways to interact positively with other children. By using a combination of play therapy , dance/movement therapy, and cognitive-behavioral strategies in the groups, children learn to be successful with their peers. I offer individual counseling sessions on parenting issues and for those children that need help with selective mutism, anxiety, and specific behavior issues not applicable to the group situation.

Providing my clients with a comfortable, open, non-judgmental environment is key to developing a trusting relationship. I have found it to be so important for my clients to recognize and build upon their own strengths. In our work together we can establish definable goals for treatment and uncover various patterns that developed over time. After obtaining a Master's Degree from Columbia University, I had the opportunity to work in both inpatient, outpatient, and private practice settings.

Are you worried about your child and struggling to find ways to help him/her? Does your son or daughter seem unusually sad, angry, have trouble making and keeping friends, or following rules? Sometimes after a change or trauma children express their difficulties through negative behaviors. As parents, we all want our kids to feel good about themselves and be successful. Sometimes its easy to lose sight of a child's strengths and positive attributes. I'm passionate about helping struggling kids and families get back on a positive track in a fun and engaging way.

Life can be extremely busy and trying at times, especially now with all of the sudden stressful changes in our lives, and we can feel as though we have too many roles to fill at once. This can create anxiety, depression, stress, and family issues. Having someone to help work through these difficulties can be extremely beneficial. I have much experience with various populations and age groups and provide my services in your home, as that is where people feel most comfortable and that is where many of life's challenges occur.

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 Middletown or for a Middletown 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.
