Creative, Innovative, and Individualized Approaches to Therapy

Counseling, Art Therapy & Play Therapy for Children, Families, and Adults


Carbondale Counseling Associates utilizes creative, innovative, and individualized approaches to therapy which makes therapy a fun and relaxing experience, while still contributing to personal growth and change. Carbondale Counseling Associates is excited about the opportunity to help you and/or your children navigate the struggles of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Whether an ongoing issue such as autism or mental illness, or an acute issue like a recent trauma or loss, we are honored to be a part of your healing and wellness journey.

Many people find traditional verbal counseling intimidating. However, play therapy and expressive arts therapy are non-threatening treatment options that bypass defenses and create a positive experience for the participant. Play therapy and expressive arts therapy are fun, innovative, and progressive approaches to treatment. Play therapy is a counseling modality that requires specialized training, experience, and supervision. 

Play therapy is appropriate for children of all ages with a wide variety of clinical concerns. Play therapy utilizes art making, games, and dramatic play to help children process challenges and solve problems. Both play therapy and expressive arts therapy help keep the therapeutic process fun and engaging.

We also offer specialized approaches to the treatment of trauma including Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).

Carbondale Counseling Associates is committed to reaching children, adolescents, and adults through treatment methods that are relevant and effective. If you think that therapy would be effective for you or your child, please call or email us to schedule an appointment today.
