Joanna Von Staden, Counseling Intern


I am grateful to be working as an intern at Southlake Counseling alongside a talented team. I will be graduating in May from UNC Charlotte with a Masters in Counseling, and a dual concentration in Clinical Mental Health and Play Therapy. I love working with children, adolescents, and their parents, helping children and their families reinforce their own ​inner strength and capabilities. I utilize Child Centered Play Therapy when working with young children, because I believe PLAY is a child’s language and TOYS are their words. I have experience leading CPRT and CTRT workshops for parents and educators, bringing play therapy into homes and into the classrooms. Post-graduation, I look forward to continuing my own journey of professional and personal growth while also working to support children and their families through their healing process.
