How Can I Help Your Child and Your Family?
I am a Play Therapist in the St Louis area. I specialize in working with children and their families. As a Play Therapist, I work with children of all ages. I work with a variety of issues to include: ADD/ADHD, anger management, anxiety, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), depression, trauma, oppositional defiant disorder, and school problems.
What Can You Expect?
When you call, you will speak with me. I will answer
any questions that you have about my practice and my treatment
approaches. I will ask you some initial questions, such as your name,
contact information, and what prompted you to call.
At your first visit, I will have you complete a consent for treatment and a facesheet. Or you can download this forms and
bring them to your first appointment. I will review this information with
you and ask you and your child questions regarding various aspects of their
life and issue(s). Some questions that I may ask include:
- Who is
in your family?
you like school?
do your friendships look like?
- Do you
have any medical issues?
- Do you
have any problems with any emotions (e.g., depression, anxiety, anger
management issues, etc.)
- Any situational stress?
Additionally, I may have you complete some additional
questionnaires regarding your child and yourself. If you have a younger
child, I may want you and your child to participate in a play therapy
assessment. This play therapy assessment involves you and your child alone in a room.
I have six to seven tasks for you and your child to complete. I am
not in the room and I videotape the assessment. I review it later and
give you feedback at a future session regarding this assessment.
Generally, it takes 1 to 4 sessions for me to develop some
type of treatment plan. I will then share this plan with you. If at
any time, you have any questions, feel to free to ask, email me, or contact me
on the phone.
