My work with children is heavily influenced by Larry Cohen, Ross Greene, developmental neuroscience, and is play and connection based.
My style is emergent and non-directive, although there are certainly times that active problem-solving and sharing resources is appropriate and helpful. I see my role as one of holding space and witnessing the poetry of our lives, connecting with you. Together, we search for patterns and try to change the ones that aren't helpful, and celebrate those that are. The philosophical backing for my work is found in Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) which posits that we grow through and towards healthy relationships; we are hardwired to connect. Therapy helps make sure those connections are healthy.

There are times when we all need some additional support and guidance to help us get to where we want to be mentally and emotionally. Counseling can help us take this journey and get to that healthier place. I believe that these journeys require a good connection and balance between the therapist and client. Both must be willing to give and take within the therapeutic process to make it a success.

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 Bloomington or for a Bloomington 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.
