Professional statement

Ginny Paige is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist based in New York City. Ginny supports children between the ages of 4 - 9 years old and adults. Ginny's work with children and adults begins with appreciating the individual and deeply honoring our very human need for understanding and acceptance in the world. Ginny recognizes that each child and adult has unique experiences and perceptions that form an individual worldview.

When children are experiencing challenges, she looks beyond a child's behavior, in search of the why. She engages her child clients in play therapy activities, including sandtray, expressive arts, movement and talk. While play therapy techniques are important and effective tools to assist children with processing emotions, Ginny has found that positive shifts in behavior accelerate as an authentic connection forms during sessions. As a result, children feel safe and are increasingly able to integrate upsetting emotions and experiences. Ginny teaches children about feelings self-awareness and how to engage in self-care. Kids learn how to notice and manage the big feelings that are part of life. Resilience grows. Ginny invites parents to partner with her throughout.

Ginny’s approach with her adult clients is warm, curious and engaged. Ginny utilizes a psychodynamic and humanistic lens to help clients more deeply understand interactions and relationship patterns. She provides plenty of space and encourages clients to explore personal strengths. Clients learn to connect with self during sessions and know that unconditional positive regard is a given. Ginny works with clients to explore and create goals and to develop an individual dynamic roadmap that feels authentic to the client. She empowers clients to connect to inner guidance and the feelings this may bring up.


Message to clients

Worry, sadness and grief are a part of life. So are happiness, peace and gratitude. Wherever you are, moment to moment, during our sessions you'll have the space to be with your feelings. We’ll explore coping strategies and self-care in a way that works for you. I will always respect your values and therapy goals.

Many clients are seeking balance in life. Taking any step toward ease, no matter how small, can result in feelings of empowerment and peace. I’ll partner with you as you create your path.

A Note to Parents and Caregivers: Making the decision to seek support for your child can bring up feelings. Be kind to yourself as you find your way and reach out to a compassionate and understanding family member, friend or mental health professional. I support and teach parents how to nurture and grow parent-child relationships. Children feel these efforts to connect and truly benefit from feeling supported.

Office hours: Monday-Friday. Early morning, daytime and evenings.
