Unlike some child therapists, I have also attained formal play therapy training.
Although I work with children and adolescents individually, working with them alone is not sufficient. As a rule, I strive to incorporate parents in the process as much as possible. I also strongly believe in involving teachers, pediatricians, and other professionals in order to provide comprehensive treatment. As a parent myself, I am very aware of what it is like for me to entrust my childrens' care into the hands of another. For me, working with children is thus a very privileged thing. To be successful, I first start with earning the trust and respect of both parent and child.

I strive to create a warm, supportive and collaborate environment, where clients can feel safe to work through difficult emotions, thoughts and experiences.

As a child & family therapist, I guide families through meaningful change. I help parents move from feeling concerned and frustrated to optimistic and empowered. Children move from lost and alone, to secure and loved. I focus on communication and relationship building, supporting families by increasing their effectiveness in these areas. Parents and youth experience increased mutual respect, understanding, and empathy, creating opportunities for communication, validation, and problem-solving, in a safe environment.

As a parent/caregiver, a certain level of stress is normal, however when your stress level becomes unmanageable, it is time to seek professional support. I help infants and their parents; individuals and their families repair the effects of trauma and stress in their lives.

Healing requires a safe and accepting place to express fully all of the feelings, thoughts, and experiences that make us who we are. As we sort out our experiences, we begin to understand ourselves better and can learn new ways to respond to the twists and turns that life has to offer. Development of new skills, an understanding of basic mental heath practices, and re-creating a new way to do life are all goals many of my clients have achieved.

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 Thousand Oaks or for a Thousand Oaks 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.
