Enter into children's play and you will find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet."

Sarah Tucker, Denton Play Therapist Child Counselor

If you are reading this, you might be feeling like something has to give. You're doing the best you can for your child, but you know you need support, and just aren't sure what the next step is. Please hear me when I say: You do not have to do this alone. Using a developmentally responsive approach to counseling, I help struggling children and their overwhelmed parents to heal, grow, and thrive. 

I've earned both my Masters and PhD in Counseling with a specialty in play therapy from the University of North Texas (UNT), where I conducted research on the effectiveness of play therapy. Through my clinical experiences in community agencies, schools, and private practice, I've had the privilege of helping children and their families to improve communication and understanding, cope through stress and trauma, and find solutions to problems that feel unsolvable.
