Children play in therapy.
In private practice for over 25 years, I have provided services to children, adolescents, adults and couples who are struggling with inner turmoil and the challenges of everyday life. I believe it is only by truly listenning to the bullied child, the nervous young man, the recently divorced woman, or the parents of an anorexic teen that a therapist can understand and provide the support and treatment that truly helps.

My approach to psychotherapy is supportive and collaborative, as I help individuals and families gain the strength to help themselves. I have experience helping children and adults with school- and work- related problems, behavioral difficulties, disabilities, grief and loss, and interpersonal challenges, as well as mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. I practice play therapy with younger children to help them work through their emotions and experiences and to role play new coping skills. With older children and adults, my focus is on making connections between thoughts, feelings, and behavior.

Throughout my career I have specialized in helping individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, OCD, and psychotic disorders such as Schizophrenia. I have utilized multiple different intervention strategies to provide the highest level of care for my patients. My philosophy of working with an individual in therapy is person centered. The focus of the treatment is on the goals of the individual person. Since everyone has a unique set of issues the treatment plan will vary person by person.

Therapy is collaborative, compassionate, and relational. What if you could find freedom from feelings of anxiety and depression. People are naturally motivated toward healing and recovery, and that an alliance with a supportive therapist, with whom you feel safe and comfortable, can facilitate this process. There is no template or single method that I use in my practice. Instead, we will determine the pace and style that is best for you. Throughout our work together, I will be open to and enthusiastic about the feedback you provide about the treatment. I will share my thoughts and assessments, with room for discussion.

Much like Irvin Yalom, an American existential psychotherapist, I too believe that therapy must be individually crafted. We each walk a unique path and on it, we need support. I find the most empowering thing about therapy is that you sit in the drivers seat; my job is to help you navigate any obstacles that impede on your ability to live your most authentic life. I take a holistic approach to therapy and am a strong believer in exploring innovative modalities to healing such as mindfulness, somatic work, and creative expression. In our work together, I will always lead with compassion, respect, and understanding.

Therapy like life is a journey. It helps us clarify the narrative of our lives. When we understand the past, we can improve the present and change the future. It helps us learn the tools to change our thoughts and behaviors, and cope with feelings. It gives us the skills to interact more successfully with others and feel more comfortable with ourselves. A therapist can guide us along this journey, pointing out landmarks that give us clues about why we repeatedly create outcomes we want to change. A therapist helps us map a new course toward the destinations we desire.

Insightful. Experienced. Knowledgeable. Reflective. The search for the right counselor can be a daunting task. When you've found the right professional, you'll know from the feelings of comfort, warmth, and welcome that envelope you. I believe we are all puppets on a string, living this life to learn better ways to love and treat each other with kindness, respect and compassion. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and I do believe it all works out in the end, however, it is impossible to do it alone. Together, we can build sessions that inspire, and encourage.

Often times the most challenging periods of life are when we are in transition. Perhaps you are just beginning college and are feeling overwhelmed at all the new expectations, social dynamics, freedom and responsibilities. Maybe you are about to graduate and the uncertainty of what come next feels daunting or paralyzing. Or, are you pregnant or newly postpartum? Becoming a parent is one of the most emotion-filled and life changing transitions an individual makes in their life. How do you find yourself coping through these times? Are you able to make room for the entire spectrum of feelings that are a part of the journey?

My theoretical orientation is integrative, which means I use a combination of humanistic, solution-focused, person-centered, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness based /contemplative approaches, stress management, and insight oriented techniques-depending on the needs of the client. I understand how critical the relationship between client and therapist is to the success of the therapeutic experience. As such, my hope always is to provide a warm, empathetic, supportive, and nonjudgmental environment-one in which my clients will feel safe and encouraged to build trust and work towards self-empowerment. To that end, I employ a collaborative, strengths-oriented approach.

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 Northport or for a Northport 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.
