As a collaborative therapist my goal is to help with physical, mental & emotion awareness, healing with acceptance of the past and how to take action moving forward towards a desired future. Art therapy in combination with talk therapy will offer personal insight, decrease anxiety and improve one’s overall well-being. With 20 years experience using art with families my focus is to help with transitions such as grief, adoption, divorce, addiction, eating disorders, and trauma.

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 Brentwood or for a Brentwood 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.
