I specialize in working with children and am an associate of The Child Therapy Institute, where I was trained in a primary, non-directive methodology.
This child-centered approach is grounded in nearly a decade of clinical experience and training. It affirms the idea that the deepest healing comes from within and that innate, curative capacities are activated within the emotionally supportive and non-judgmental context of therapy.
The additional availability of age-appropriate materials supports this process:
Sandplay Therapy through the creation of miniature worlds with small figures in a tray of sand
Play Therapy by supporting communication via the acting out various scenes and experiences with toys, playhouses, puppets, games, etc
Expressive Arts Therapy
Expressive Arts Therapy by incorporating the use of drawing, painting, sculpting, making collages, etc
