Ms. Peters is a Licensed Professional Counselor, specializing in child, adolescent and families. She is known for finding creative solutions to challenging situations and for her enthusiastic spirit.
Ms. Peters graduated from Temple University with a major in Psychology. She then obtained her Masters in Counseling Psychology at LaSalle University. She also completed the requirements to become a Registered Play Therapist and is currently training to be certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
Since becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, she has worked with children who are on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for the past ten years. Her early training included work in behavioral support and focused on developing children’s social skills. She worked with young people in homes and classrooms as a wraparound Therapeutic Support Staff and worked in individual and groups settings as the Clinical Support Specialist at The Wanna Play Program (now The Social Enrichment Center). As her work progressed, Ms. Peters became more interested in expanding her knowledge and she spent a few years working in the Brain and Behavior Laboratory in The University of Pennsylvania’s Neuropsychiatry department focusing on the early symptoms of psychosis in young people. Her background in working in the world of play with children illuminated the healing power of creative expression which she now incorporates into her work.
