I am a specialist in treating children and teens with anxiety and depression through play, art and talk therapy. The past 18 months have been incredibly hard as anxiety has skyrocketed along with other mental health concerns. Every day I help families address the difficulties that are pervasive as we do our best to raise a family in this ever changing and challenging world. Don't miss the signs of anxiety and depression that our current environment is creating for our teens and young adults. Silence does not mean everything is OK. I can help you navigate this unprecedented time and the complicating factors that go with it.

Using the modality of play therapy I am able to meet children where they are and help them process their inner world, increase self-esteem & develop appropriate coping skills to handle intense emotions.
Resiliency is the ability to overcome obstacles and find contentment within ourselves. Life can be challenging and its okay to ask for support to help navigate through struggles. I am passionate about helping children, adolescents and adults find their voice and overcome adversity. I believe that the therapeutic process is collaborative in nature as the families role is vital. I have extensive experience working with children who have been through trauma, struggle with attachment, anxiety, behavioral and mood disorders.

I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Child-Centered Play therapy, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).
Children and adults have many stressors and concerns in their lives that may be difficult to talk about or share with close friends and family. Many having the fear of being judged hesitate sharing their true fears and anxieties and small children may not even have the words to properly describe what they are feeling. I provide a safe environment where people can come and talk about (through talk therapy, activity therapy, or play therapy) their experiences in their day to day lives and how it effects them. I further assist parents to build on their parenting skills and open the lines of communication.

During play therapy sessions, my focus is to help children better understand themselves and their emotions, appropriately express their emotions, increase responsibility for choices, and develop a healthy sense of self. I believe that parents are an invaluable part of the therapy process.

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 Frisco or for a Frisco 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.
