Paige Spangler is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Master of Clinical Counseling degree. Paige works primarily with children and adolescents and their families. She works with children with normal developmental issues and those who have experienced trauma and struggle to cope with the effects of such experiences.
Paige has specialized training in Play Therapy, which she finds to be particularly helpful in working with children who need help processing traumatic events and learning new coping skills.
Paige uses a combination of play therapy techniques along with Collaborative Problem Solving, the Nurtured Heart Approach and Dialectical Behavior Therapy to address a variety of emotional regulation and behavioral issues. She also has experience using the Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) to help parents build stronger relationships to support their children's healthy emotional growth and development.
Interesting fact: Paige has a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art. Her experience as an artist helps her to understand that other forms of communication, such as movement, visual art and play can often express much deeper themes and feelings than verbal communication, especially in children who do not have the vocabulary to express all that they feel.
