Everyone deserves to be accepted, appreciated and acknowledged. When stress overcomes we often forgot how deserving we are of these needs. That's why it is my mission to supply a safe space for your child/teen to reconnect in expanding their self-worth and coping skills. Since everyone is unique, I adapt my approach to meet their needs, while integrating evidenced based practices along with humor, art, and play.

I tailor my approach to the client's needs and use a variety of therapeutic methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Play Therapy, Expressive Therapies, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and Somatic Experiencing (SE).
I am passionate about helping children find their own unique voice, having consulted to teachers and parents and having worked extensively with children over two decades. I coach parents on effective ways to help their children. With children I treat behavioral problems, learning difficulties, anxiety, poor self-esteem, emotional and performance issues, social challenges, and trauma. I work with adults who experience anxiety, relationships difficulties, and trauma in their lives. I want my clients, children and adults, to reach their potential and goals. I enjoy helping them get to a place where life can be good, healing can happen and joy can be found.

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 Glen Ellyn or for a Glen Ellyn 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.
