Offering not only traditional psychotherapy methods, but also utilizing a creative way of addressing counseling when traditional “talk therapy” is not as effective. The most commonly used approaches include art therapy, writing, sand, play, clay, movement therapy, psychodrama, role play, and music therapy. Integrating many techniques and offering a variety of options is reflective in my belief that there is no “one size fits all” treatment.  Often these methods have supported my success in connecting with hard to reach populations. 

Sand tray, for example, is a non-verbal method that allows a person to create “worlds” with miniature toys and sand. This acts as a reflection of their own life and allows them the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and to connect to their inner being. Play Therapy is NOT tricking children to talk while they play; it’s about using their own symbolic meanings of his or her play to understand and communicate.

I believe that people have a need to belong, are self-determining, and creative. All behavior is goal-directed; Discovering the uniqueness of each individual and the social world around them, is an integrate part of understanding and challenging those perceptions and beliefs.

Offering a safe and non-judgmental space, where people are encouraged to identify and connect with the best within themselves, The studio is full of art supplies, sand tray miniatures, and lots of toys. We often get glitter on the floor, dance under the disco light, and discover a world in the freedom of just being ourselves.

While all of that might sound overwhelming, it is, and this is not your typical counseling office. I also don't like elevator music. 


Play Therapy for Young Children

Like adults, children have big worries, too. Loss of a loved one, low self-esteem, an alcoholic parent or divorce in the family are all common issues that many kids struggle with. Because children do not have the words to explain what is troubling them, professional child therapists help them sort out issues through play.


Therapy for Adolescents

Adolescents are often resistant, hostile, moody, and difficult, but they can also fascinating, creative, spontaneous, and passionate. Adolescents are often overwhelmed and even confused by the seeming onslaught of complex feelings that come as they move toward adulthood. Forms of therapy that allow symbolic expression of internal conflicts is usually more effective than the traditional  talk therapy methods. The goal of therapy with adolescents is to help them understand why they act out with rebellion and how they can learn to express their needs and wants in a more productive way.


Family Therapy

Family sessions are essential when treating adolescents with behavioral or emotional problems. Improving communication between family members and helping both the parents and the teen understand how conflicts can be resolved through improved communication often result in significant improvements in the family relationship. If there is one element in a child's life that improves their chances for success in school and life, it is strong family bonds with positive, constructive communication. It is important that parents not feel defensive if the therapist focuses on changes in how they communicate with their teenagers. The need for such a change is not an indictment of the parents' abilities; it is simply a part of the therapeutic process that will help them better work with their adolescent and find solutions to behavioral issues.
