What is play therapy?
Play is the Rocket Science of human development.
Children use play to solve problems, explore their struggles, regulate their nervous systems and much more. Play therapy is a far more effective form of therapy than talk therapy for children.
Gen uses play therapy as a means of seeing into your child's world. She then, employs play as a means of teaching your child new strategies for navigating that world.
Gen can support your child in bolstering their sense of self and help them establish skills to name feelings and navigate their life.
A letter to parents
I take great care to keep parents involved and informed during the therapy process. It is important that parents understand and participate in their child's therapeutic process.
I use evidence based therapeutic play models & I have decades of experience with children, so that I am keenly aware of developmental markers and subtleties in childhood emotional expression.
Most importantly, I genuinely care for your child and appreciate the strong bond you have with them. I look forward to working with your little loved one.
