I work with a variety of groups and find the following techniques useful in my work: non-directional play therapy, art therapy, strategic and structural work in family therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectal Behavioral Therapy as well as Insight Oriented Therapy with adolescents and older.
I believe people seek out objective psychological services when they have exhausted their personal resources; it is at that point I find they are open to collaboratively seeking out and finding new ways to resolve their problems. With a Master's Degree from East Carolina University and 30+ years experience, primarily in a clinical setting, but some in group care and some in academia, I strive to offer these services in warm non-institutional setting. I have been married to Chuck for 26 years and have 3 wonderful adult children.

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 Wilmington or for a Wilmington 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.
