I am a Registered Play Therapist working with children who are hard to reach either because they are angry, anxious, or depressed. Children don't express themselves the same way that adults do, rather, they express themselves more naturally through play. Play is a child's natural way of relieving stress and play therapy is the best practice for working with children. Using Play Therapy most children are able to work through issues in a much shorter amount of time. For more information Call today (910) 407-0052 and check us out at www.AtlasChildCounseling.com

*Not currently accepting new patients, thank you* My background is in working with children and teens for the past ten years. However, I have found over the last few years that I love working with adults as well! My ideal client is one that seeks to have an understanding of self and learn new ways to adapt to the world given whatever barrier may currently be in place. I find that many clients enjoy the safe, nonjudgmental environment that I provide. While I do provide insights as they come up and coping skills, I do not tell clients "what to do."

My work is informed by this belief: Life is difficult and facing its challenges requires courage and support. I strive to create a non-judgmental environment where thoughts and feelings can be expressed, issues can be explored, and values can be acted on. Recognizing suffering and the need for change is never easy, but asking for help is a strength that often brings relief, problem solving, and transformation. Each day I witness how counseling helps individuals navigate predictable life-stages as well as unexpected crises. And I see that healing, growth, and meaning are within reach for all.

Hey there. Something has changed or happened and it’s been a lot to deal with. It happened to you, to your kid, or someone else you know. Sometimes that voice inside your head becomes your worst enemy. It may try to convince you that you deserved that bad thing that happened to you, you aren’t good enough, or that it’s hopeless to think your situation may improve. I believe you have the strength to overcome whatever has happened and when you do, you can continue growing into the life you have always dreamed of living. Learn more at Carolinapcs.org.

No matter where you are on this journey we call life, we can all benefit from support, free of judgment, to explore, grow, and evolve into the best versions of ourselves. It's exhausting and overwhelming, the feeling of being stuck in a seemingly endless cycle. Your thoughts run away with you, anxious and jumbled, trying to make sense of everything that has happened in your life, leading you up to this point. You want to make lasting changes, but deciding where to start feels impossible. You desire happiness, peace, and balance, but it is so hard to get perspective on your own. I would be honored to support you in self-exploration.

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 28387 or for a 28387 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?
Therapists in 28387 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 28387. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 28387
