Sandtray Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, and Psychodrama are a few of the activities our therapists incorporate with older children, teens, and adults. Therapy Activities provide an alternative to traditional talk therapy when an individual feels "stuck" and/or when these methods of self expression feel more "safe" in communicating strong or overwhelming experiences.
Play Therapy is to children what talk therapy is to adults. Play Therapy utilizes children's inherent and natural mode of emotional expression, play, to encourage healing, resolution, and positive self growth. Our Play Therapists are trained to provide an emotionally safe environment encouraging children to confront, conquer, and master their fears, anxieties, and concerns.

WHERE THE PIECES COME TOGETHER
Family Connections Counseling
All families are unique as is each person within them. Family Therapy offers an opportunity for each member to communicate their needs and emotions while learning to respect and understand the feelings and needs of the other members. Our therapists provide a safe and secure environment promoting positive growth and healing to each individual member while working together as a whole family unit.
Our therapists recognize that for full healing and growth to occur within a child, parent/caregiver involvement is key. Combining parent coaching and relationship based training with child therapy allows parents to become a part of the healing process thus encouraging a more fulfilling, supportive, and satisfying relationship to both parent and child.
