The first step to a productive therapy experience is creating a supportive and safe environment where people can begin to wonder about themselves and the changes they would like to make. Through empathy, warmth and insight I have helped many people who feel ambivalent about the therapy process gain confidence, clarity and self-awareness. By sharing their stories, my clients not only understand the events that brought them to this moment in time, but how to actively write their own stories. I have experience working with people of all ages with depression, anxiety, trauma histories, adjustment disorders and bereavement.

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 Brooklyn or for a Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Brooklyn
