Using play therapy, talk, and movement I work with children and teens to make positive behavioral changes.
Are you worried your child or teen is struggling to make or keep friends? Does your child have a hard time in social situations? Do they seem angry, depressed, or anxious? As a parent, are you unsure how to help? I work with children and teens to help them develop new life and social skills using talk, play therapy, and movement. During therapy your child will learn to better recognize their feelings and develop new coping strategies that will help improve their relationships. My goal is to help your child gain a better understanding of them selves and become more connected with others.

Play therapy is a form of counseling using play-based models and techniques to better communicate with and help clients, especially children, achieve optimal mental health.
I enjoy working with children and their families. I believe that children that experience poor impulse control and inattention (ADHD), anxiety, depression, grief and trauma do not necessarily have the skills to express their feelings in ways that adults can relate and therefore are sometimes misunderstood. I work with these children and their families to best identify ways to communicate those feelings in a safe, healthy environment through the use of play therapy and expressive therapies.

With children, I use play/art/talking.
By listening to people and paying attention to what develops, I collaboratively assist them to understand feelings, thoughts, body experiences, and behaviors. This may remove barriers to living life to the full. We often create these barriers early in life and then continue them through habitual thought, feeling-management, and relationship patterns. Healing occurs in a safe, new kind of relationship. Within this relationship, people may recognize things they have known and not known. Those who openly share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences (including a hesitation to share certain things) are often able to make progress.

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 Columbia or for a Columbia 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.
