Play Therapy

What is Play Therapy?

Play Therapy is the process of using the act of play to help clients prevent, or resolve, various social, emotional, or behavioral issues.

How does Play Therapy work?

Play therapy allows patients to explore and engage, in a natural way, in order to reveal certain emotions or feelings, solve problems, and build skill sets. The idea is to create scenes where a patient is working through an emotional process, building new coping mechanisms, or enhancing their social prowess. This is accomplished through various activities such as storytelling, dancing, sand play therapy, acting, or drawing.

Is Play Therapy only for children?

Play therapy is for everyone, not just children. Play therapy is encouraged for families and adults. The power of play is universal and transcends age.

EMDR Therapy

What is EMDR?

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a therapy used to relive, and process, psychological stresses such as trauma or PTSD.

How does EMDR work?

EMDR is the process of working with the brain to re-establish its natural healing process. When a traumatic event occurs, our body's natural fight or flight response kicks in. When we experience trauma, the memory of the event that is stored in our brain holds onto the fight or flight response. EMDR trains the brain to store the memory in a new manner, so that the mind can heal.
