Evidence-Based Therapy for Children, Teens, and Adults Grounded in Relational Neuroscience, Somatic Understanding, & Attachment
Child Therapy - Play Therapy
Play Therapy is a developmentally appropriate and evidence-based approach that allows a child to process often overwhelming and unmanageable emotions through the use of toys, games, and expressive art. During play therapy, I work with children to foster healthy expression of feelings, while they learn how to regulate and make sense of their experiences and emotions. Through play children also learn concrete coping and social skills to succeed outside of the therapy room. Play therapy is easily adaptable and just as effective online (tele-play therapy)!
Teen & Tween Therapy
Being a teenager in today's success-focused, technologically-oriented society comes with many challenges. I provide a safe, supportive space to process feelings and current stressors. Tailoring treatment to each individual teen, I incorporate talk-based, expressive arts, somatic (mind-body focused), and parts-integrated cognitive behavioral interventions based on the teen's preferences and personality. Through counseling, teens have the opportunity to build their self-esteem, make sense of negative actions and feelings, increase self-awareness, and improve emotional regulation.
Therapy for Adults &
Research has shown that the brain has the ability to grow, heal, and rewire throughout one’s lifetime. Utilizing evidence-based approaches grounded in relational neuroscience, I work with clients in a collaborative manner to unpack and process thoughts, feelings, past experiences, and current stressors that have contributed to a sense of discomfort, hopelessness, or overwhelm.
Through increased self-awareness and stronger attunement to the mind-body connection, clients begin to experience a sense of control, internal understanding, and empowerment that leads to lasting change in their personal and professional lives.

My name is Anthony Dimitrion. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Play Therapist, and Certified Child-Centered Play Therapis. I specialize in providing evidence-based therapy services for children, teenagers, adults, and families. My therapeutic philosophy is founded on the belief that all clients are unique, and that treatment should be tailored for each client taking into consideration their presenting concerns, psychosocial history, personal preferences, and family dynamics.
I believe that therapy is most effective in a personable, easily approachable format that is respectful, creative, and collaborative. I practice from a neuro-relational and somatic lens, incorporating understandings of family systems and attachment theories, the mind-body relationship, and neurobiology. My passion lies in helping children, teens, and adults develop better self-awareness and sense of internal control through increased attunement to the mind and body. This increase in self-awareness improves self-confidence and one’s ability to manage often difficult and overwhelming feelings.
