I am a certified Child-Centered Play Therapist and many of my clients are between the ages of 3-9 years old! Some of the reasons children are referred are: low frustration tolerance, difficulty regulating behavior and/or emotions, anxious or depressed behavior, traumatic experiences, inflexibility, poor social skills and more. As an extension of the individual work I do with children, I sometimes teach parents to play therapeutically with their children using the Filial Family Therapy model. This skills-based approach is a powerful way to help children heal within the context of the parent-child relationship.

Amid this time of heightened emotions, we need to provide ourselves with the gift of time to slow down, be still, reflect & evaluate our current mental, emotional, physical & spiritual health. We are in survival mode, adjusting to our new normal. It's okay to mourn what you're missing right now, even if it seems minor compared to what others are going through. The mind & emotions uniquely shape a person's worldview & perception of reality. No two people have the same experience, and there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" treatment modality. You may find you want to resolve issues rooted in past hurts & break old patterns.

Seeking out therapy is never an easy decision, however it may be an important step in being happier and healthier. Perhaps you are struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety, maybe you are experiencing a stressful change in your life, or possibly you have been thinking about seeking out therapy for a long time to address something from your past that you feel is getting in the way of your present. These feelings become overwhelming and seem like they impact every aspect of your life. My philosophy as a therapist is that you are the expert on you.
