Facilitating growth and healing for all ages, along with consultation and supervision for mental health professionals, through the therapeutic power of play, expressive arts, and the human-animal bond.
Child-Centered Play Therapy
Sand Tray and Expressive Art
Children 3-12 Years Old
CCPT is a developmentally appropriate form of counseling for children, The process of CCPT allows a child to feel heard and understood as they express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences through their play, making the way for them to work through challenges and achieve optimal growth and development.
Pre-teens to Adults
Much as toys and play are used for words and expression of children, figures, sand, and art materials are used by older clients who are unable or unwilling to verbalize their feelings to communicate, making it especially beneficial for clients with a history of trauma. Even those that feel comfortable with talk therapy often benefit from the ability to explore deeper meanings and more possible solutions to issues. Since this is not intended to be an art class, many clients (young and old) report that they feel freedom in the non-judgmental and creative atmosphere.
In this form of counseling, the counselor is joined by a specially trained and evaluated pet. The pet is integrated into the therapeutic process based on the client's age as an essential part in supporting the client in reaching therapeutic goals. Therefore, this may look differently for each client.
Teens to Adults
Spiritual beliefs often play an important part in a client's mental health and healing. For those clients that wish it, my background equips me to incorporate Christian principals with other evidence-based approaches to counseling in an open, non-judgmental format.
