We do have a team of professionals specializing in mindfulness, relaxation, art, play therapy , Autism treatment, and substance abuse counseling in addition to traditional talk therapy.
A large part of my practice is inclusive of conducting (neuro)psychological evaluations. Typical presenting problems include concerns about attention/ADHD, learning, trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, memory, disruptive behavior, hyperactivity, social interactions/Autism, dementia, neurobehavioral disorders, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive impairments among others. Evaluations assist with diagnosing, offering treatment recommendations, noting progress and current level of functioning, assisting with getting school-related help, recommendations for guardianship, etc. I also offer therapeutic services. I believe that developing a deeper understanding of oneself is important so individuals can become free to embrace their inner strengths, solidify their belief systems, and reach their greatest potential.

I like to incorporate art and play therapy techniques when appropriate.
In my 10+ years of clinical practice I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families struggling with a variety of mental health illnesses. I have done this work both individually and in couples and family therapy sessions. I have given special focus to adolescents dealing with anxiety, depression, self-harming, self-esteem, and self-identity issues. I am also currently increasing my specialized focus on adoption issues and anxiety treatments. I enjoy working with the 10-25 year old age group but in my years of private practice have worked with children as young as 5 and adults as young as 65.

A child’s occupation is to play and socialize with same aged peers. A child’s ability to fully engage in play or socialize with others at his/her highest level of functioning can be challenging due to factors such as sensory processing, behavioral, and mental health limitations. Participation in meaningful occupations is vital to mental health and well-being. As an Occupational Therapist, I provide comprehensive services which include an evaluation of the child’s current skill set to assess age appropriate development in the areas of fine/gross motor skills, cognition and executive functioning, life skills, and sensory modulation.

Despite supporting those you love, working incredibly hard, and being a good friend, you still worry a lot. You want to let go of worry, overthinking, and frustration. You care too much about what others think, make others comfortable at your expense, do the supposed right thing, struggle with the confidence to say no, and don’t listen to your thoughts and feelings. It's hard to say no when you believe it means you're lazy or selfish. You don't want to disappoint people. You may think, “I'm too much to handle” You want peace and confidence. You also want to express your real self and transform your relationships.

Growing up can be tough. Your child is trying to learn how to navigate relationships at school and home while figuring out who they are and their place in the world. When dealing with stress and difficult situations, your child can feel alone, as though no one understands them or can relate to what they are going through. Because of their age, your child may not have the vocabulary to express the complex thoughts and feelings they are experiencing. As a result, they may shut others out or seem as though they don’t want help. However, the truth may be that they do not know what kind of help they need or how to ask for it.

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 Milwaukee or for a Milwaukee 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.
