"How satisfying is it to pull a weed from its roots. I think about this when I am gardening. If I am unsuccessful at pulling the weed from its roots and only remove the top layer, it satisfies for a short time, my garden looks okay, but sooner or later that weed re-appears. I relate this to the cycle in many of our own personal lives. Seeking therapy can be a daunting task; lets reduce the stigma and just talk. I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is of significant importance for effective change to occur. I am humbled when client's decide to share their own "personal stories" or experiences in life with me. "

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 18103 or for a 18103 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
