A New Day Counseling Center

"A Child's Play is his Talk, and Toys are his Words." ~GINNOTT
Developmentally, play is a child's natural language. Counseling through the use of play therapy can assist children in processing and expressing their feelings in a safe environment. This type of therapy allows the child to express what is troubling them through the natural process of play when they cannot say their thoughts and feelings in words.
I work with children of all ages utilizing various counseling techniques including play therapy. Play therapy refers to a large number of treatment methods, all of which make use of one or more of the natural benefits of play. All play therapy differs from regular play in that the therapist helps children systematically address and resolve their own problems.
Play therapy allows children to find creative solutions, change the ways in which they think about, feel toward, and resolve their problems.
I can help your child by interacting with them on a level they can understand to promote healthy, long-lasting change. Although I can help with many issues, my experience and training with children suffering from anxiety disorders such as Selective Mutism, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), General Anxiety, Phobias, Separation Anxiety, etc., makes me uniquely qualified as an area specialist.
Now is the time to call 407-260-6181 to schedule an appointment and finally obtain relief for your child, for yourself, and for your family.
