MY STORY

How this website was "born"

Narumi Amador, LPC, RPT. 

Supervision Made Fun

I Love Play Therapy, literally! That's how and why this website came about. I wanted a space where I could provide education, and sell my personal line of products "Rosemarie" and other fun items for people who love doing the same I do:

Play Therapy. 

In my career as a therapist I learned early to use Play Therapy in my work, I don't think there is any better way to work with children, and research shows that. Equally important,  I consider promoting healthy attachment and working on restoring unhealthy attachment in those situations where attachment has been negatively affected, so that children can thrive. That's why in my work with children I use an approach that combines both: Play and Attachment. 

As a mother of 3, I also learned soon during my journey into motherhood that I did not have all the answers to everyday challenges with my children. That's how my interest grew in the area of parenting as well. Every since my first child was born in 2013 I became interested in becoming the best mom I could be,  and  since then I have spent many hours reading, researching and learning about parenting approaches, bonding and attachment. I used my personal experiences to write my first book "You are so Precious Rosemarie" which shows the importance of "delighting" in our children in a daily basis during ordinary every day routines and activities. My second book "I love you from A to Z, Rosemarie" is a continuation of the first book, where attachment and play continue to be the driving force. In both books parents, teachers and other workers in the helping profession will find guidance and easy to implement help to build stronger bonds with their children while parenting  and delighing in them.

I  hope you find this website fun, enlightening and helpful! 

Thank you for visiting!

              SUPERVISION

 

 

I love working with child therapists, workers in child welfare, schools, or agency settings.
After working in therapeutic foster care, as a children's counselor in a domestic violence shelter, as a youth substance use counselor and as a children's counselor in private and non profit agencies,  I understand the unique pressures experienced by social workers, LPC'S and Marriage and Family Counselors in high-stress, high-trauma settings. I feel very strongly about the importance of good supervision and its role in protecting new professionals  from vicarious trauma and burnout. In the type of work we do, self-care is a must and in our supervision sessions we will learn while having fun and promoting a healthy work environment where you can help your clients heal, recover or become empowered.

 We can meet at my office in Columbia, or I can come to you when supervision is done in group.
