I believe that our relationships (with ourselves and others) have profound impacts on our lives, and the unique relationship between therapist and client facilitates the process of exploring current patterns and learning new ways to relate and cope with stress. Whether you are struggling with feelings of depression or anxiety, challenging relationships, trauma, or life transitions, I am here to support you. I will start by listening with nonjudgemental curiosity, then collaborate with you to identify and achieve your therapeutic goals. Above all, I strive to create a safe space for mindful engagement and self-expression.

I enjoy working with children and adolescents of any age. Listening to children and teenagers is so important as they often can tell us what we need to know to support them. I use both talking and play to facilitate connection and communication. Interpersonal experiences affect our relationships and the way in which we interact with others. I have a strong background in family systems, school collaboration and developmental and attachment theory which is instrumental in my work with clients. I also work with families to facilitate communication when there is a disruption in the family system due to divorce or adoption.

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 Austin or for an Austin 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.
