Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am very passionate about Play Therapy and working with children! I am the current President of the California Association for Play Therapy. Children are more limited in their ability to express themselves verbally, but through play therapy they can show what they think, feel and how they experience and understand the world in which they live. Just as adults talk things out, children play things out. Since play is the natural means of expression for children, toys become their words and play therapy becomes a safe and effective form of therapy for them. My website: www.solplaychildtherapy.com

I am a child & family therapist who specializes in play therapy & sandplay therapy.

I work from a psychodynamic perspective, however I utilize an integrative approach to therapy sessions depending on the needs of each client.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
