THERE IS SO MUCH JOY IN SEEING THE TOTAL FREEDOM CHILDREN POSSESS TO CREATIVELY EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND TELL US ‘BIG PEOPLE’ WHAT THEY NEED
I provide individual therapy for children between the ages of 3 to 12 years of age who are, or who have, experienced challenges that are getting in the way of feeling happy and productive in their world.
Primarily I use Synergetic & Expressive Arts Play Therapies. Play invites connection, love and joy. This quiets the stress response and allows children the safety to bring forth the experiences in their lives that they are perceiving as challenging. As I model regulating through these feelings and they begin to co-regulate with me, their window of tolerance widens and the challenges become manageable.
I also draw from many evidence based social emotional programs to build on your child’s social success and put them in the driver’s seat when it comes to managing their uncomfortable feelings.
