I believe Family Systems play a huge role in how people grow and learn.
I bring intention, patience and hope into my work as a therapist and try my best to inspire you to do the same. I like for you to feel secure and comfortable when you come into my office; and empowered and satisfied when you leave. My sessions are free of judgments, and spent building a foundation where progress toward your goal(s) can be made. Regular day-to-day obligations can easily interfere with our best intentions. Identifying and expressing your goal(s) is the first step. I would embrace the opportunity to work with you.

I enjoy the process more when a client is motivated to do the work, but struggles are part of the process for many clients and a challenge to therapists to improve. I don't pathologize and I regard what some therapists call "resistance" as a signal that I need to be doing a better job of remaining open-hearted.

I take great care and interest in helping others achieve stability and growth during periods of change and uncertainty.

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 Westfield or for a Westfield 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.
