Yedida (Phyllis) Yasgur Verified
Play Therapist, Psychotherapist
Whether you are struggling with sudden or chronic illness, trauma, eating disorders, recent aliyah, neglect or abuse, disability, a ruptured relationship, loss, or learning challenges, our work together will help you to heal emotionally inside and out. Our work together will help you to no longer feel triggered by previous difficult or traumatic experiences and gain new perspectives.
I have 39 years' experience in the USA as a clinical social worker working with children, teens, adults, and families. My credentials include Advanced Training in Family Systems Therapy, Certification in EMDR, and Level 3 Internal Family Systems, among others.
Play is the language of children. As a Registered Play Therapist and a Certified Child Trauma Specialist, I will welcome parent and child to my dedicated playroom outfitted with therapeutic toys, games, and creative activities. In a supportive atmosphere, parents will learn how to enhance their relationship with their child, and set limits in loving ways. Children will learn how to integrate their emotions, body sensations, and thoughts so that they can work through difficult experiences and painful memories.
Challenges can be difficult, but they can also lead us to new vistas and emotional growth. I will be there with you, side by side, in your healing journey, as you find and develop inner strengths and gain new perspectives.
