I enjoy working with individuals across the life span. I especially have a passion for working with families of all types. I have a credential as a Registered Play Therapist and advanced training in Emotion Focused Couple Therapy. What that means is that I tend to work from Attachment Theory. I believe that all individuals were meant to be attached to people in our lives and sometimes things happen that hurt that attachment. With that being said, when a client works consistently with a therapist, even severe problems can either totally resolve itself or become more manageable.

Why Play Therapy? This is a frequently asked question. I believe that through play, children express themselves in their own developmentally appropriate way. Through play and other expressive therapies, children can resolve problems, cope with difficult emotions,improve cognitive development and help resolve inner conflicts. Although I work mainly with children, my education and training also allow me the opportunity to work with adults on certain issues.

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 Chattanooga or for a Chattanooga 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.
