Mary Affee, LCSW, RPT
     Registered Play Therapist

I believe all children want to do well. My goal is to assist children with emotional identification, emotional literacy, and emotional expression. By developing a nurturing therapeutic relationship, I create a safe place for children that provides a unique and special place for children that leads to self discovery, as we collaboratively explore and develop coping skills to healthy emotional expression.

Masters of Social Work, Fordham University, NY

I have over 8 years of counseling experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families.  My professional work experience includes providing individual therapy, group therapy, and mental health services in both private practice settings and in public school settings. I specialize in play therapy because play therapy is essential to human growth, development, learning, and cultivating relationships. I utilize a play therapy approach because its a natural process where children and adolescents learn to regulate their emotions, develop emotional literacy, and healthy emotional expression. I have extensive experience with treating children and adolescents struggling with behavioral issues, more specifically, anger, trauma, sexual abuse and physical abuse.
