Play Therapy is a form of counseling that is not only geared toward children, but is translated into a language children understand and use often- the language of play. Play Therapy is designed for children ages 3- 12, but can also help those that are older and have difficulty expressing themselves. The therapist encourages the child to explore life events which often includes role playing using toys to represent the stressors or traumas they have been through and how they are coping.
Art Therapy involves the use of creative counseling techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, coloring, or sculpting to help people express themselves through art and examining the emotions and story behind the art. With the guidance of an art therapist, clients can come to a better understanding of their feelings and behavior so they can resolve their deeper issues in counseling.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is an evidence based trauma therapy for treating areas like anxiety, trauma, and phobias. It helps the brain work through areas that in the past it got stuck on and reduces how upsetting those events are and helps us make sense of what happened to us.
My therapy approaches go beyond traditional talk therapy into cutting edge, research based anxiety counseling approaches to help reduce your anxiety. I work from a strengths based, client centered perspective that is trauma informed.
