Looking to work on skills?Looking to find what is working in your life and what is not? Looking to delve deeper into your relationships? Ever wonder if your thinking patterns are healthy or not? I am a trained and licensed therapist. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults who are going through difficult times and have trouble identifying emotions to behaviors.

Are you or your child/teen more anxious, sad, or angry? Do they seem disconnected, spend more time alone, have trouble relating to peers, or have constant worries about life? Maybe you feel like you are walking on egg shells and unsure of how to respond to their behaviors. Perhaps, there has been a trauma that the whole family is still processing. There is more anxiety and stress and it is becoming overwhelming. You try and listen and offer support but you are out of ideas. You need someone who is objective, can relate to your child, and give them practical tools to help them through.

Using play therapy , I help parents gain tools and strategies to help their children, while children learn how to better communicate and cope with their emotions.
Do you feel stressed-out, overwhelmed, have trouble making decisions or find that your emotions are interfering with relationships? Maybe you're a parent that loves your child, but you are at a loss of how to help them with their intense emotions and behaviors. Are you tired and fed up with life during a pandemic? Life is not always easy but with the right tools you can learn ways to grow and adapt so that you can more easily handle the ups and down of life. “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the first step." - Naeem Callaway

My training includes dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, and child play modalities.
I view each child, teen, young adult, and family as unique. That uniqueness is why I draw from different therapy modalities to support emotional well-being. Anxiety and depression often stem from complicated interpersonal relationships, lack of self-confidence, and feeling unable to control events in our lives. Our joint effort can help you attain the freedom to make positive choices in your life. I bring clinical experience offered in a genuine, nonjudgmental, confidential atmosphere. Drawing from cognitive behavior approaches, insight therapy, and mindfulness practice, my goal is to provide tools to help you in improving your state of mind.

I use many different approaches in helping individuals and families deal with problems that concern them but have special training in the use of the visual arts and play in therapy, and in hypnosis.
I believe an important part of the therapy process is developing a flexible and collaborative relationship in which the client feels safe to explore, understand, and change relationships and behaviors, so that he or she may grow in a satisfying, creative, and life enhancing way. I have worked as a clinician for over twenty years and maintain a general practice for adults, families and children.

Sometimes it feels like anxiety is so overwhelming that it fills whatever space we give it--getting in the way of the things we want to do in life and affecting what we think we are capable of. If you feel like you are quietly suffering in the back seat when you'd rather be driving, there is hope. If you notice your child's true vibrant and independent nature paling when faced with scary new experiences, change, or social situations, we can work through this as a team. I believe change is possible through developing a meaningful relationship and emotional outlet, learning about the process and patterns of anxiety, and practice.

Research shows at least 1 in 5 people struggle with an anxiety disorder. Helping someone with anxiety or OCD has become a true passion of mine- or the "bread and butter" of my therapy skillset. I am a state licensed professional counselor drawn towards helping children and adults to be the best version of themselves. I primarily use a short term, problem solving approach also known as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but often use a "neapolitan" combination approach in working with people to tailor to their each individual needs.

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 Dresher or for a Dresher 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.
