Play Therapy For Children
Play is the language of children, so they become easily engaged with sand tray play, costume drama, art materials, percussion instruments and the other expressive play possibilities. The goal for children is to bring their feelings to words and to find other effective coping strategies.

We provide opportunities to communicate through:
  • Sand Tray
  • Visual Art
  • Clay
  • Music
  • Puppets
  • Costumes
  • Writing
  • Role Play
  • Movement
Expressive Art Therapy For Adults
Adults can find that words fail, thoughts go in circles, and we feel stuck. Rediscovering our playful creative selves is empowering and enlightening, resulting in self-awareness, new coping skills, improved relationships, and communication.
Expressive Arts and Play Therapy are not “recipes” or “techniques“, but individualized experiences that come from ancient healing techniques and are supported by current brain research.
