I am a Social Worker in Private Practice and specialize in play therapy.
Play is the natural language of children. Play therapy provides a way for children, from the age 3 to 18, to express their emotions, experiences and feelings through a natural, guided process.
I use play to communicate with children and resolve psychosocial challenges by using a variety of techniques and play media such as doll´s houses, play dough, books, therapeutic board games, sand trays, art and writing.
I do play therapy to empower children who have had to deal with a traumatic experience like divorce, loss of a loved one, exposure to crime, being bullied or abuse. I also offer support to children with mood disorders, ADHD/ADD or gifted children.
