Brooke E Medina, LCSW, RPT, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Houston
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my practice. I am a bilingual (English/Spanish), Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Registered Play Therapist. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, which include hospitals, public and private special schools, private practice, non-profit organizations and administration. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and parents to address a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, such as inattention/impulsivity, depression, anxiety, parent-child relational issues, grief, anger, school and social challenges, attachment difficulties, developmental delays, language and learning differences, trauma, divorce, adoption, selective mutism and parenting.
I have a special interest and extensive training in child-centered play therapy, filial therapy, family therapy and humanistic sand tray therapy. Specialization in play therapy allows me to work with children as young as 2 years. Play is the primary medium of communication, even in the complete absence of spoken language.
I believe that each individual has the inherent strengths and internal resources to confront and overcome life's challenges. I partner with the family to create goal-oriented therapeutic treatment. I am committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for your family and celebrate your courage to seek therapy!
