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.

According to the World Health Organization, suicide is second leading cause of death among those with ages ranging from 15 to 29. Many professionals tell us that having direct conversations about mental health is essential for those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and other forms of mental illness. However, in my experience, these are often difficult subjects to discuss. There is often fear about "saying the wrong thing" or "not doing enough."

Stressed? Tired? Can’t seem to get ahead? Don't like yourself? Finding that sense of security and strength in the midst of changes, challenges, and relationships is difficult, and some feel that taking time to stop and reflect is impossible; yet often it is one of the most important steps in moving forward or getting unstuck. Stopping and working with a trained therapist can help facilitate change in meaningful and impactful ways. It can also help avoid a complete life derailment. I believe that the work I do with my clients is sacred, which is why I employee some of the most up to date and clinically validated treatment techniques.

I started Aptitude Behavioral Services, LLC to service school-age children in the East TN area. I love working with children through pre-teen ages and have also worked with a few higher-functioning teenagers. My typical day involves working with families that face challenges with behavior and working directly with children to decrease these behaviors while building skill deficits. I enjoy including family in my sessions and want to empower caregivers and family members so that they are equipped to handle behavioral challenges.

My ideal client would be someone who is struggling with some sort of hurt in their life, caused by broken relationships or other things they been through in their life. They want to begin the process of working through the pain they have experienced, so that they can heal and use what they have been through not as a launching pad for their future. They need someone to guide them along the journey toward that healing, so they can continue to thrive and be all that they were designed to be. They know that the journey will be long and will require a lot of work, but they want to do the work necessary to become whole and well.

It's not very often that males are encouraged to seek help when dealing with the challenges of life. As a result, we resort to age-old adages that tell us to ignore the pain, 'man up', and soldier through it. But the fact of the matter is that we feel, we suffer, and we hurt and it has nothing to do with being a man and everything to do with being a human being. Men want healthy relationships, we want to be happy, we want to feel in control of our lives and be fulfilled. Taking the step towards mental health is an integral part of this process.
