“As a Clinician, I firmly believe each patient holds the keys to achieve their therapeutic goals. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, including children and their parents. I utilize multiple mediums, including play therapy, to help children and their caregivers resolve concerns they may have.  The benefits of play therapy are endless because play is the language children speak. Through play therapy, children are able to learn self-expression, emotional regulation, healthy coping and problem solving skills, as well as modification for negative behaviors.” Stated Amy Barton, LCSW.
