"**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS FOR JANUARY 2020** So many of us struggle through the plot twists in life and find loneliness and depression, separation from others, and stress along the way. The stages and changes we encounter in our relationships, work lives, and personal experiences are easier when faced with support. Sometimes the people in our lives are not the right people to offer this support, and sometimes we prefer to keep them out of it. An outsider, completely dedicated to your goals and growth, your exploration and journey may be exactly what you need. "

"While I approach therapy from a Cognitive Behavioral perspective, focusing on challenging thoughts and changing behaviors, I do so with the primary focus on respect for my patients and their individual issues. I want you to feel supported in session but also know that you will be challenged and tasked with completing goals in between sessions. I greatly enjoy helping my patients reach their own goals to be successful in their life, especially in the areas of social relationships, academics, employment, and self-care."

"Anger. Guilt. Resentment. These are the common themes we all struggle with, today. Sadness is all too real when we hurt, and when we do not cope well, or do not know how to cope with our anger, guilt, and/or resentment, we can become depressed. What you will see, is a vicious cycle; a depressed person then becomes angry, and resentful, and can start to feel guilt. We are all able and capable of making better decisions for ourselves and for our loved ones. There is no shame in asking for help...only regret in never trying. I can help you."

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 Bakersfield or for a Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Bakersfield you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Bakersfield and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Bakersfield or family therapy in Bakersfield.
