Does your child struggle with anger or aggression? Do you feel lost in trying to help your child manage their anxiety? Are behavior problems at school interfering with their ability to learn? My role as a play therapist is to understand and accept your child’s world and to provide opportunities to move through life’s challenges.
All behavior has meaning. Difficult behaviors are expressions of a child’s inability in the moment to respond to everything going on, in and around him or her. When behaviors are viewed with more understanding, attunement in the relationship is more likely. When children feel attuned to, they become more equipped to understand, express and manage strong feelings.
Supporting the child in moving toward the uncomfortable sensations, emotions and thoughts that they might be experiencing. The result is that the child learns how to integrate and manage their internal experiences faster. Synergetic Play Therapy™ (SPT) is the first research-informed play therapy model to blend together neuroscience, attachment/attunement, therapist authenticity, emotional congruence, nervous system regulation, and mindfulness.
