Hello. My name is Maria. I am a child and adolescent therapist. I would love to work with you and your family.
Clinical Social Worker in Ardmore, PA
Adolescence is a time of growth and independence. I love working with this population because of their resiliency. At times, developmental stressors can emerge into poor adaptive skills. With a safe space to process and make connections, growth and positive adaptive skills emerge.
I have over 250 hours of play therapy training to work with children between the ages of 4 and 12. Within this group, play is often the best language used to help with expression of their inner worlds, thoughts and feelings.
I approach every child from a developmental and attachment lens. I have extensive experience working with children and parents who struggle with attachment insecurities.
I am trained in EMDR and Brainspotting. I also have significant training in working with acute and complex trauma.
My approach is client centered creating a safe space for the client to express, explore and process as needed.
