I am a licensed clinical social worker and registered play therapist.
Reaching out to a therapist is not easy. Regardless of the reason, calling a stranger to ask for help for you or your child can feel intimidating. I would like to take a moment to reassure you that this first step is often the hardest, but it does get easier. I'm here to support you on this journey. I offer a warm, empathic, and client-centered approach focused on making you feel heard, seen, and supported. I believe the client-therapist relationship is the most essential part of therapy and will work to build your trust. I focus on making sessions a safe space to share your feelings, learn new skills, and begin to make changes.

Interventions include academic and organization strategies, play therapy, CBT, behavior management, and stress reduction/mindfulness.
Life is filled with many opportunities as well as challenges. My goal is to help children and adolescents recognize and seize those opportunities and overcome any challenges and obstacles that get in their way. By helping them create a positive mindset, build effective coping strategies, and expand their repertoire of problem-solving skills, they can live a healthy, satisfying, and successful social and academic life. The earlier these skills are cultivated within the child or adolescent, the greater the opportunities to practice and utilize them to their benefit. Please visit my website: www.childresilience.com

I believe in meeting clients where they are at! Every person is resilient. I intend our collaboration to remind you of your strengths, provide you tools to weather the storms of life, and a safe space to gain insight into your truest self. I come to social work from a social justice background and recognize that trauma and oppression are often intertwined. Acknowledging systemic issues is a vital part of my practice, particularly for youth and families directly impacted by it. Teaching you to advocate successfully on your own behalf, whether it be in your relationships or larger systems, is also essential.

Worried moms & frazzled dads, look no further! Maybe your child/teen is anxious, worried, sad, angry, or acting out. You've tried empathy, rewards, punishments, extra attention, special privileges. You've read books, consulted parenting blogs, & asked other parents for advice. Whatever you try, it may even work for a few days but then all the old problems come right back. Maybe your boy wants to dress like a girl and it's freaking you out. Maybe your teen declares "I'm queer"--what does that even mean? Let's add the stress of Covid-19, and you're exhausted, frustrated, and worried about your child's future.

Feeling sad, overwhelmed and anxious? Stressed in your relationships? Struggling with children or adolescents, perhaps taking care of elder adults or someone with special needs? Life can be challenging. There may be days when you're able to solve one problem only to have three more appear. Families are constantly shifting with the culture. Although change can be a good thing, it may feel too fast, creating fear and anxiety. When life becomes too difficult to manage and when there are regular and unresolved conflicts among family members it may be time to seek help and gain perspective.

Grief is a normal process people experience after a loss. Grief can become messy, complicated, and turn us into a tangled ball of emotions. But experiencing these messy and complicated emotions does not mean we are broken or damaged. We just need someone to understand the intense emotions felt on a daily basis. And realize that some days are harder than others, especially if it's a special occasion. Or when we hear a song or see a place that sparks a particular memory. And more importantly we will never "get over" the loss of our loved one. Missing our loved one becomes a part of who we are.

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 Lawrenceville or for a Lawrenceville 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.
