I provide a warm and nurturing environment where clients feel safe to explore their deepest inner selves. Whether addressing adult or parent-child issues, I emphasize the importance of working on one's own emotional and nervous systems as a first step to creating change. My intention is to help people "heal", not just "deal". I use talk therapy and experiential techniques such as Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, and mindfulness practices. I have found that working with deep emotions embedded in the "felt sense" of one's experience is a powerful tool leading to transformation.

My clinical specialties involve the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, adults, and families. When parents bring their children in for treatment, they usually want to know what is going on with their child, and what their child needs. I believe that relationships are critical in all of our functioning, and the key to facilitating change. I want to take the time to understand not just the problems, but who my clients are as people, and how to help make lasting change. Therapy and parent consultation are a powerful combination for children and adolescents with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and developmental issues.

She shot you that look again - the one that somehow infuriates you and breaks you at the same time. You never imagined that your smiling, happy baby girl could grow up to do that. She’s 16 now and everyone says she will grow out of this, but every day she struggles more. Everyone in the house walks on eggshells around her. You remember what it was like to be her age and you’ve tried to help her learn from your experiences, but she doesn’t want to hear it. Is this just how teenagers are? Or is something really wrong?

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 Charlottesville or for a Charlottesville 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.
