Much of my work experience to date has been in a school setting with children using a play-based approach and I love to see the communication and understanding that can happen with even the youngest clients using play.
My work with parents, children, and families so far has been some of the most rewarding work I've had the privilege of doing. During 5 years of experience working with children and their families in various contexts, I find that sometimes the focus shifts from changing behavior to repairing a connection to sometimes simply finding a new way to communicate. I find my expertise in helping children find their voice

"It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness." This famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote can be applied to many situations. When we get stuck -- in a rut at work, in a stormy relationship, in a lukewarm marriage, with our children -- we suffer but are often pulled to focus on the problem rather than finding a solution. Sometimes, we're not aware of what the actual issue is. All we can do is try to avoid the pain, skirt problems, even pretend we are fine. We are blocked by fear -- another word for anxiety. Together, we can walk slowly through that fear, and find that light.

Namasté is a Brainspotting Therapist and Lawrence's first Accelerated Resolution Therapist (ART). ART uses visualization and rapid eye movement to reprogram the way in which distressful memories are stored in the brain, reducing strong physical and emotional reactions to past experiences. While the premise of Brainspotting is "where you look affects how you feel" and uses points in your visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain, for processing. Both are ideal for treating depression, PTSD, trauma, anxiety, for children and adults. With specialized training in treating traumatic stress.

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 Manhattan or for a Manhattan 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.
