I been in the behavioral health field for 27 years and I am still highly energized, empathetic and compassionate about my profession and the people I serve. Using traditional talk therapy as well as DBT and Expressive therapy modalities I focus on mindfulness, wellness and strength-based practices to empower people to be active and motivated for change, acceptance and letting go of the past which is holding back the healing today.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool of transformation, and an opportunity to gain a better handle on the sources of suffering in one's life. This process can take many forms, whether it's finding new ways of thinking and responding in the moment, gaining freedom from past influences, deepening self-understanding and self-acceptance, or finding creative and concrete solutions. I honor the depth and complexity of every client's unique personality, and put great care into listening deeply, asking the right questions, and creating a relaxed therapeutic atmosphere characterized by honesty, open-mindedness, and non-judgmental curiosity.

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 Barrington or for a Barrington 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.
