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.

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.

Welcome! My name is Dan Meier and I am a relational, psychodynamic therapist. In practice, this means I work collaboratively with my clients and pay special attention to stories, embodied messages, and relational dynamics. I work this way because I believe harm and healing both take place within the context of relationship. Counseling offers the opportunity to explore our painful stories in the presence of an attuned, compassionate professional and rediscover our hope. Together, you and I will work toward meaningful change, greater self-acceptance, and deep healing.

My focus is on helping people struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief, loss childhood trauma and transitions. I see children as well as adults. So much of what we have experienced in life is carried within. Working to identify, label and feel what we carry allows for it to be released. I see mental health as having layers, so as we grow and release what we carry we are lighter and healthier for our work. I make suggestions and share the impressions I get in order help clients find their paths. What works for one may not work for another. I've seen a lot of goodness come from this work and love doing it.

Therapy to me is a process of discovery and rediscovery, reworking patterns of behavior, or beginning to change thoughts or beliefs that are no longer relevant or useful for our current self and life. It's engaging thoughtfully in your life, taking an active role in your relationship with yourself and others, and fostering the type of self and change that you desire. My role in your process lies around engaging in thoughtful discovery, working through challenges and resistance that comes inherently with the onset of change.

It can feel awful to struggle at different times in your life and painful experiences can be hard to manage on your own. You may find yourself going in circles as your mind tries to both heal and protect old hurts. Many of these old hurts can come from early relationship complications as well as later misunderstandings and trauma. These hurt places in you need to be known, untangled and sorted through gently over time, while we also pay attention to the strengths you already have.

No one seeks therapy for the same reasons. We all have our different stories and challenges, and external and internal influences. It takes courage to take that first step and reach out. It really does. My goal is always to meet every client with compassion. I value and appreciate the courage it takes to open up and talk about stress in your life, relationship difficulties, regrets, and challenges. I consider it an honor to sit with clients, hear your story, and help you realize your inner-strengths.

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 Shoreline or for a Shoreline 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.
