My name is Emily Rose and I am an LPC and a Registered Play Therapist. But there is so much more that makes me who I am not only as a professional but also as a person. I have my own experiences, perceptions, roles, and quirks that make me uniquely who I am. When working with clients therapeutically I meet them where they are at and use a holistic approach that considers ALL that they bring with them into the counseling setting...their own stardust.

So often we suffer traumas and emotional struggles, feeling like no one will understand or not knowing where to turn. This is one of the reasons I chose to become a counselor. My role in my client's lives is to provide a different outlook and to evaluate possible solutions. I provide my clients with a safe and supportive environment, free of judgement or criticism, where meeting their goals is top priority. I help my clients recognize their choices, as well as the means to get there, and together we will work towards achieving those desired goals.

Behaviors and emotions are at an all-time high at home because kids are feeling stressed, anxious, disappointed, and depressed. As parents we want to validate our children’s feelings and emotions but sometimes that is hard. We want to help give our children the skills to deal with times of disappointment, heartbreak and anxiety and do not know where to start.

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 Lubbock or for a Lubbock 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.
