I have play therapy techniques which I feel can enhance their growth and awareness of their place in this world.
**Unfortunately I have no availability until September 2022****Welcome and thank you for visiting. There are many professional therapists to choose from. It's often hard to distinguish between everyone and feel you've made the right decision. Finding a genuine connection can take time. It's alright to change your mind if you don't feel comfortable. The best counseling environment encourages exploration of who you are with someone you trust, accepts you as you are, and travels where you feel needed to go. I hope when we work together that you feel this connection.

People come to therapy for all kinds of reasons - to learn more about themselves, to have someone sit with them during difficult times, to process life events, to share without feeling judged. With all the crises, conflicts, disasters, and devastation happening in the world it’s hard not to feel broken. And that's without the personal dramas that play out in our lives. How do we learn to accept what is? How do we learn to change?

With children, I use sand tray and play therapy to better express emotions, and improve self-esteem and communication skills to better express needs.
One of the most difficult things is to watch your child struggle and not know exactly how to help. I am a compassionate counselor with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of different issues including anxiety, behavioral issues, depression, grief, and trauma. I use play therapy and sand tray so that your child can express themselves, in a safe, non-judgmental space. I also use a person-centered and strengths-based approach, to empower you to tap into your own strengths to bring about meaningful, positive change in your life.

Children haven't yet developed the same ability or skill level that adults have for abstraction, reasoning, or vocabulary, which makes play therapy a "natural fit" for children.
Children experiencing ongoing stress, internal conflicts and or trauma, often, more than other's their own age, resort to acting-out at home, at school, and in the community, and will do things such as; not following or ignoring directions, yelling, crying, screaming, hitting, throwing things, as well as fighting with sibling, peers, and adults. Parents do their best, but sometimes feel overwhelmed or even guilty, where despite all of their efforts, the child continues to misbehave. The hardest part, is that parents and kids want resolution, a return to a better relationship, but sometimes it's hard to know where to start.

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 Albuquerque or for an Albuquerque 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.
