You've taken a first step toward healing by seeking support. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety or loneliness which have resulted from trauma you have suffered. Maybe you are grieving. Whatever pain you or your child are in, I will be your witness when you enter my practice. Children are drawn to the sand tray to help them work through behavioral issues. It is through play that children begin to work through dynamics that do not serve them. I am trained in interpreting dreams, which hold deep and healing insights for your healing. I work with adults, adolescents, and children.
While I use cognitive-behavioral methods in my practice with patients, I will also encourage you to bring your dreams, or work in the sand tray. Dreamwork and sandplay are powerful aids to healing. I use dream workwork and other somatic modalities to connect you with the energetic you, which is your birthright.
I use dream work and somatic awareness and mindfulness techniques in my work. I will encourage you to develop your creative potential.
