I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S). Play therapy can help children express their feelings in a safe and supportive environment.
In Play therapy, toys are like the child’s words, and play is the child’s language.
Play therapy helps children express what is troubling them, when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings.
I utilize Sandplay therapy with children and adolescents. Sandplay is an expressive and creative therapy. Sandplay is based on the psychology of Carl G. Jung and developed by Dora Kalff, a Swiss psychotherapist.
The arrangement and placement of figurines in the sand tray is often a reflection of one’s inner emotional world; anger, depression, abuse or grief.
Many times, clients are able to access unconscious, hidden, or unexplored areas of their lives.
