Play therapy with kids and talking with teenagers.
I have practiced clinical psychology for 35 years. I love the process of helping people explore, understand and work through the deepest problems, conflicts and struggles of their lives and relationships. We all struggle: it is the human condition! Every person's life experiences are unique and deeply personal, as are the meanings attached to those experiences. For me the complexities and subtleties of each person's narrative are endlessly varied and fascinating, worthy of the deepest attention and respect. Not many are as privileged in their work as I am! For more information, you can visit my website.

A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit. I am only working virtually via Zoom and no longer working with children under 12.

Children and adults alike confront challenges to healthy functioning and personal fulfillment. I aim to create an empathic connection with my clients, enabling them to better understand their emotions and habitual ways of coping with challenges, and to change the patterns of thought and behavior that interfere with reaching their goals and potential. Whether using play therapy with children or talk therapy with adults, I take an active approach to help clients achieve their goals and resolve their problems. When treating children, I work closely with parents, providing careful guidance about how to help their child develop and thrive.

I use an eclectic approach with my clients, being solution focused and using such modalities as CBT, strength based therapy, play therapy, motivational interviewing and mindfulness.
What we endure in our lives can make the future cloudy and seeking help difficult. Acknowledging that you desire change is often the first step towards clarity. Many then find that they need further guidance, which is what has likely brought you here. I believe it is important for my clients to recognize and then use their strengths, past successes, supportive relationships (including the therapeutic one), and own hopes to obtain whatever goal they set forth. Moving forward I hope to build a strong, supportive, open therapeutic relationship which we can use toward a self-fulfilling and clear future.

Mental Health is such an important part of our lives, and I feel it is the ultimate “self care” as it often leads to more insight, self awareness, and positive changes. The goal is to live with more intention and kindness towards others and most importantly ourselves. There are many reasons why someone may be interested in therapy - all of them are valid.

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 Needham or for a Needham 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.
