When we experience times of challenge and stress it can be difficult to connect to our own internal resources. Therapy is a safe and nonjudgmental space to support reflection and processing of difficult times. As well as promote the growth of adaptive coping tools, resources, and healing. I am passionate about establishing a therapeutic alliance to affirm internal strengths as we work together to support your therapeutic journey.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. This modality was developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro, and has been extensively research. EMDR is recognized as an evidence-based treatment modality for PTSD and other trauma disorders by a growing number of national and international organizations. Through research, it has been discovered that EMDR has the capacity to support healing with many other areas of stress or challenge, such as: anxiety, abuse, neglect, grief and loss.
“Enter into children’s play and you will find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet.” Virginia Axline
Play therapy is based on the premise that “play is a child’s natural form of communication”. By using evidence-based play techniques a therapist can support the child in emotional expression, adaptive processing, healing, and the learning of new skills. This is done by the therapist communicating with the child through play, in a variety of capacities: such as stories, puppets, sand trays, art activities, and games, to name a few. Play therapy is geared to provide children with a language that feels safe and developmentally appropriate for them to communicate about their feelings, thoughts, and experiences. This provides children with a sense of empowerment and supports the building of therapeutic rapport in order to gain understanding and coping tools for the “big feelings” to support emotional regulation, as well as healing from difficult, stressful, or challenging experiences.
