What is the goal of life? It is to be happy and to build a life worth living. We become happy when we are able to develop true, authentic life, self-connected with others, and undefeated by our circumstances. When we work hard to reach our goals, we feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. In turn, this spurs a stronger desire and commitment to continue to make progress and deepen our personal mission in life. I believe the purpose of counseling is to support and encourage this lifelong journey.

I provide Play and Art Therapy for children 12 and under. Children express their worries, fears, and confusion in a variety of behaviors from aggression to withdrawal. With their still rapidly developing brains and language centers, children don't yet have the capacity to accurately express themselves through words. That doesn't mean that they aren't communicating! They are constantly "talking" to us through their behaviors and actions. The challenge for the caring adults in their lives is to unravel what they are trying to say through their behavior. Sometimes parents need support.

I combine evidence-based practices like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and mindfulness tools with play , humor, and creativity to help you achieve your goals and break out of whatever rut may find yourself in.
Being a young person in this day and age can be challenging. It can also be exciting and enjoyable if you have the right tools and support in your corner. The clients I work with (12-25) typically come to my doorstep with a sense of being out of control of their inner and outer worlds. They may be struggling with OCD, eating and body image issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, schoolwork and family issues.

The Play Therapy Cottage is a nonclinical residential setting, providing you with a tiny home experience in a garden setting.
I believe everyone has innate wisdom within themselves to overcome whatever obstacles are in front of them. I specialize in treating children, adolescents, and families that have experienced trauma and consequently suffering from anxiety, depression, attentional difficulties, sleep issues, developmental obstacles. Expressive therapies offers a unique way to language those issues using art, painting, clay work, journal writing, sand tray play and canine therapy, and they begin to externalize worries and concerns, crisis and trauma through symbols and mastery is gained. When families in pain begin to play together, perceptions of each other are changed, communication is accomplished and individuals experience their true potential.

While working with me, you may note I borrow techniques from CBT, Narrative, Play & Art Therapies, what many refer to as talk therapy, Animal Assisted Therapy, Sand Tray, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and more.
I believe that all persons have the basic right to be heard. We all have experiences that make us who we are, some of which we may need or wish to explore further or heal from. Together in counseling we can create a safe place to work toward agreed upon goals.

In sessions, you will have the opportunity to see the world through your child’s eyes as you engage in play together.
Are you wanting to find joy and ease in your parenting, but instead encountering frustration? If your child joined your family through adoption or has a trauma history, challenging moments can sometimes crowd out the joy. Maybe you find yourself yelling or losing your patience more than you would like. Maybe you’d like to get to the roots of your child’s baffling behaviors, but you don’t know where to start. Together, we can shift your perspective and see your child through a new lens. Underneath the big behaviors is your child's true self, a struggling child who wants to feel regulated, connected, and safe.

I have created a play therapy room where children can come to work through what is upsetting them.
Life is not easy. Unexpected problems arise that you are unprepared to deal with. Whether your child is struggling in school, depressed, angry, or perhaps the whole family is in crisis. I have many years experience with children and families in a variety of settings (preschools, schools, and community mental health agencies). Together we can sort out the challenges and uncover the talents that will help your family function better. It can be hard to take that first step and try therapy, but it is time. Things can be better and I am ready to work with you if you are ready to try.

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 Lake Forest Park or for a Lake Forest Park 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.
