I am a Registered Play Therapist working with children who are hard to reach either because they are angry, anxious, or depressed. Children don't express themselves the same way that adults do, rather, they express themselves more naturally through play. Play is a child's natural way of relieving stress and play therapy is the best practice for working with children. Using Play Therapy most children are able to work through issues in a much shorter amount of time. For more information Call today (910) 407-0052 and check us out at www.AtlasChildCounseling.com

My work is informed by this belief: Life is difficult and facing its challenges requires courage and support. I strive to create a non-judgmental environment where thoughts and feelings can be expressed, issues can be explored, and values can be acted on. Recognizing suffering and the need for change is never easy, but asking for help is a strength that often brings relief, problem solving, and transformation. Each day I witness how counseling helps individuals navigate predictable life-stages as well as unexpected crises. And I see that healing, growth, and meaning are within reach for all.

*Not currently accepting new patients, thank you* My background is in working with children and teens for the past ten years. However, I have found over the last few years that I love working with adults as well! My ideal client is one that seeks to have an understanding of self and learn new ways to adapt to the world given whatever barrier may currently be in place. I find that many clients enjoy the safe, nonjudgmental environment that I provide. While I do provide insights as they come up and coping skills, I do not tell clients "what to do."

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 Southern Pines or for a Southern Pines 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Southern Pines are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Southern Pines. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Southern Pines
