Maybe you are struggling in your relationship with your partner or even in the relationship you have with yourself. Hi!

When our children hurt, we hurt. Teaching young children, adolescents and young adults coping skills that they will use for a lifetime is a wonderful gift for the entire family. Adult women experience a tremendous amount of stress. Habitual behaviors or ways of thinking that served us as children are often of no use and even harmful during adulthood. Feeling better requires challenging these old habits and creating new pathways to suit our current goals.

Are you feeling stuck or trapped? Do you need to drop into greater self-awareness or “grounding”, but you keep getting “triggered” and respond in your old ways? Have you tried meditation or yoga, yet feel something is missing? Have you sensed true “flow” and playfulness in your interactions with others or within yourself, but, sadly, it is just not consistent? Does your composure disappear when you need it most? Have you spent time learning how to develop your parenting and general relationship skills, but you keep reverting to prior patterns of reactivity. If so, try something new with me.

As a practicing psychologist of more than twenty five years, I enjoy the challenges unique to children and adolescents. Today's youth experience unprecedented academic and social pressure often resulting in feelings of frustration and sadness, anger and isolation. Often these emotions are buried rather than shared which can lead to harmful thoughts and behaviors. By cultivating a collaborative relationship, we work together to identify these thoughts, feelings and behaviors and the reasons behind them. Recognizing and understanding these feelings allows the patient to develop a sense of mastery over complex struggles leading to enhanced relationships while boosting self-esteem and academic performance.

To others, your teen or young adult appears to have it all. They are bright, accomplished, and successful. But beneath the surface they are stymied by worries that affect their schoolwork and relationships. Perhaps they struggle with focus or sleeping, seem angry or stressed, or avoid tasks or situations altogether. They may worry about college acceptance or falling short of having the career and life they envisioned. Sometimes the worries are accompanied by feelings of depression, low self-esteem, or irritability.

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 Wayne or for a Wayne 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.
