Depression, grief, anxiety can all happen for a wide variety of reasons, and there's no telling what might set any individual person down an emotionally unhealthy path. The important thing is to understand that there are a lot of people dealing with these issues and that it's okay to reach out for help. And when you do reach out, Michael Sanders LPC, NCC, will be here to take your hand and guide you. Psychotherapy is a collaboration between Therapist and client. With that in mind, my goal is to provide a comfortable, confidential atmosphere in which to work.

Counseling can appear to be overwhelming and intimidating. However it does not have to be this way. As we seek validation and acceptance in our lives, there are certain paths that we must take to find them. I believe one of the most important things is for people to learn how to get along with other important people in their lives, such as friends, spouses, siblings, relatives, co-workers, etc. Additionally, I strongly believe that the fundamental relationship between a client and counselor is to foster openness, trust, and personal growth.

“Enter into children’s play and you’ll find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet.”- V.A. A lot of the time children are not capable of expressing the emotions they are experiencing. Unprocessed emotions can show up as, but not limited to challenging behaviors, attention issues, power struggles at home, child/parent conflict, interpersonal conflict, and defiance. My goal is to create a safe environment for my clients to process, understand any and all emotions. I do this by utilizing Play Therapy as a means for the child to express their emotions, and learn about their experiences by using toys instead of direct words

My clients often are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious because of life changes and constant feelings of worry and overwhelm. The kids, teens, and young adults I work with often need to feel heard and set goals of better understanding their big emotions. A major part of this work is including parents and caregivers to provide tools and strategies that can help at home. My clients often have trouble expressing their deepest feelings and want to have better relationships with friends and family. Anxiety sometimes feels like it gets in the way of close relationships, but, together, we can discover new ways to reconnect.

I enjoy tackling diagnostic puzzles and working closely with patients and families to get to the bottom of what causes disruption in someone's life. Most consider me direct and no nonsense.

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 Metairie or for a Metairie 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.
