Child Therapy - Play Therapy

(ages 3-9)

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

(ages 10-17)

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 &

College Students

I work with clients in a collaborative and supportive manner to unpack and process thoughts, feelings, past trauma or experiences, and stressors that impact their ability to live their best lives. Through fostering greater self-awareness and an attunement to the body’s innate intelligence, clients begin to make connections between their thoughts, feelings, and physiological (physical) sensations, and how they influence interactions and behaviors in their day-to-day lives. This attunement helps clients learn how to cope with and overcome triggering memories or situations.  Research has shown that the brain has the ability to grow, heal, and rewire throughout one’s lifetime. You don’t have to stay stuck in the same cycle of fear, worry, sadness, or isolation. You can overcome. You can live life to your fullest potential.

 

About Me

Welcome! My name is Anthony Dimitrion. I am a creative Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Play Therapist, and Certified Child-Centered Play Therapist. 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 age, developmental history, presenting concerns, and family dynamics.

I practice from a relational and neurobiological lens, incorporating understandings of family systems and attachment theories, emotional regulation, and neurobiology.  I believe that therapy is most effective in a personable, easily approachable format. My passion lies in helping children, teens, and adults develop better self-awareness through increased attunement between their thoughts, feelings, physiological (physical) sensations, and behaviors. This increase in self-awareness improves self-confidence and one’s ability to manage often difficult and overwhelming feelings.
