About Loretta A. Player

I specialize in working with a diverse range of clients including children, adolescents and adults covering stress management, depression, trauma, adoption, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, PTSD, relationship issues and grief/loss.  I provide a safe and supportive environment to help you achieve coping skills: promote healing, stability and positive transformation. My style is warm, engaging and intuitive. Together, we develop goals and build on your strengths and resources to overcome life’s challenges.

I specialize in Play Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). These tools are effective in confronting the multitude of obstacles related to transitions and losses that are experienced during different stages of life. I work with caregivers and parents to create a collective team to discover your child’s strengths, support, meaning and healing.

Whether you prefer traditional talk therapy or EMDR, I can help you create a balanced authentic lifestyle and manage difficult life transitions. With a focus on personal empowerment and self-compassion, we can work together to unlock your true potential.
