Children experience the same relational and emotional needs as adults, however, children and adults communicate very differently. When faced
with challenges, most adults are able to verbally express their thoughts
and emotions. Due to age and developmental stages, children more naturally communicate their thoughts and feelings through play than they do verbally. Using specially selected toys, Play Therapy provides an atmosphere in which attitudes and feelings are communicated and emotions and experiences are explored.
I practice Child-Centered Play Therapy, focusing on the person of the child rather than the struggles of the child. My goal with children is to provide a positive growth experience so that they may be able to discover their internal strengths. As a PlayTherapist, I am passionate about fostering a safe atmosphere for children in which self-exploration and self-discovery build the foundation for self-acceptance and self-respect.
