I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness approaches, and many trauma focused treatments, Hypnotherapy, EMDR, and play therapy but the most important is the relationship between the counselor and the client.
Finding a best fit counselor to walk alongside you while you set and achieve your goals is the most important part. My approach is genuine, compassionate, and client centered. We will work together to learn more about you, set your goals, and reach your potential. I believe everyone needs an unbiased, nonjudgmental partner to confide in or to overcome hurdles and assist to move towards a goal. Through my practice, I currently provide telehealth (video) counseling only so clients best served will be ages 10 thru adulthood; however, I am able to provide parenting support and coaching to parents of younger children.

I am trained in Child-Centered Play Therapy and Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment, which can help to restore your child's natural responses to various social and academic challenges.
All parents want their children to succeed and be happy. Every child has his/her own unique gifts to bring to the world. Sometimes what we want for our children and what they imagine themselves to be are not the same. Sometimes children need a space to explore their own unique selves; sometimes children need help overcoming a challenge that puts their unique expression of who they are at risk. Often a child's ability to emotionally regulate has been affected by issues such as divorce, grief, exposure to violence, bullying, or other environmental factors. These experiences can have long-lasting impacts on a child's development.

I enjoy working with all ages, and have extensive experience helping clients who have experienced trauma and anxiety. I love helping children who are in foster care and/or who have been adopted, and also with adults who have experienced a traumatic childhood. It is very satisfying to watch someone overcome the obstacles that have kept them from enjoying life and reaching their highest potential.

I support children with or without special needs and their parents to improve skills and communication in a play -based behavioral approach.
You look around and ask yourself “Is this really my life right now?” Some days are okay, some are uncomfortable, and others are intolerable. In the tough moments, the things you've tried before don't seem to work. Treading water was fine for a while, but you’re ready to swim. Maybe someone you cared about died. Maybe that inner critic voice is louder or more persistent than it has been before. Maybe your child’s thoughts and feelings are too big for them to handle.

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 Jefferson City or for a Jefferson City 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.
