Not accepting new clients
My approach to counseling is that I believe in the power of a therapeutic relationship to help overcome many obstacles in a non-judgmental, nurturing, and safe environment for adults, children, & teens. I specialize in integrative, culturally sensitive, person centered psychotherapy services that help clients lead more fulfilling lives. I use Play and Sandtray Therapy in my work with children. Play therapy can provide a child with opportunities to express complex feelings, learn developmental skills and empower the child to grow and heal. I encourage different forms of self-expression such as art and play therapy.

When working with children I believe Play Therapy is the most appropriate modality.
My approach to counseling is a balance of a straightforward communication with the belief that clients are the experts of themselves. My goal is to help clients to discover their own inner wisdom and support a plan to move out of their stuckness. I believe that our early childhood experiences along with traumas we have experienced play a leading part in the stories we tell ourselves about who we are today.

Play Therapy is based upon the fact that play is the child's natural medium of self-expression. It is an opportunity which is given to the child to 'play out' their feelings and problems just as, in certain types of adult therapy, an individual 'talks out' his difficulties.” (Virginia Axline). This world can be overwhelming, especially for children with ASD, sensory processing issues, behavioral issues, and anxiety. Therapy can help a child learn skills to make the world feel safer. Please allow me to help your child learn that they do not need to mask who they are and feel that they can take on anything the world throws at them.

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 Algonquin or for an Algonquin 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.
