At times the challenges we are presented with can be painfully overwhelming. Some of our choices and habits along with our need for companionship affect our judgment. Indecisiveness and complacency can manifest as unsatisfying patterns of behavior or disheartening relationships. I believe it is possible to create meaningful changes, to be the person you want to be and live a happy, fulfilling life. For young client's fun and play are important. Incorporating creative, expressive art and play therapy interventions is my specialty. This is a great way to connect with children and teens unresponsive to traditional forms of therapy.

By incorporating and combining aspects of traditional talk therapy, art therapy, sand tray play therapy, elements of EMDR, grounding components, and psychotherapeutic processing, I offer clients a fresh perspective on seeing themselves, helping them to look beyond what their physical presence shows them and working inward on what may be hidden deep within.
In life, there are no 'ideal' clients or 'ideal' problematic issues, rather there are people hurt, people in pain and distress, and people in need of finding hope within themselves. In my practice, I thrive on not focusing on the easy fix, but rather helping clients see, learn, and trust that their own internal resources are the root of what truly helps themselves heal.

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 Chandler or for a Chandler 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.
