When working with children and adolescence I often incorporate games and play into therapy to engage them and express themselves in developmentally appropriate ways.
Thank you for visiting my psychology today page! My philosophy is that clients are the experts on their own lives, and sometimes we all need guidance and support to achieve what we want to achieve. I base my approach on each individual client but primarily use a person centered approach along with teaching many coping skills from the DBT modality. I enjoy working with clients of all ages, including young children. I have also worked with a variety of different diagnoses and can help clients with a variety of issues. Included in this would be anxiety, depression, grief/loss, self esteem, and relationship issues.

My mindfulness based, play therapy training has taught me how to help children that have gone through or may be going through a trauma. A child's language is play. My play room offers a variety of mediums (sandtray, arts, puppets, role play through costumes, legos and many, many toys) that will help a child safely express what they need to in order to heal through their play. My sessions also will partially include the parents, where coping skills and behavioral strategies can be discussed before the play time ensues. I also run a virtual LPC group supervision for those seeking credentialing.

Play therapy is an amazing resource to support a child through expressing their feelings.
The teenage years are the most vulnerable, exciting, and growing years of a young person’s life. Self discovery can often yield low self esteem, independence can easily shift to rebellion, and a slow maturation process often creates impulsive decision making. And when a parent’s warnings and worries don’t seem to have an impact on the teenager’s course, or when it feels too heavy to carry alone, it’s helpful to have another guiding force to help. Through counseling, an adolescent can feel understood, begin to understand themselves, and learn to understand and accept their role in the family and society.

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 Downingtown or for a Downingtown 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.
