Sand Tray Therapy (RIST): Sand Tray therapy is integrative work into a person’s unconscious thoughts by creating various worlds in the sand with sand tray miniatures.
These miniatures can represent all aspects of a person’s world no matter what varied world experiences. Sand tray therapy is beneficial and appropriate for all genders and ages across the board.
The work sand tray has on the brain is what is most powerful and it’s even more amazing the insight you have into your own world and your feelings about your world through sand tray therapy. I will have my RIST certification this fall.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy/Equine Assisted Learning (EAP/EAL): I had the opportunity to be certfied in EAP/EAL when working with a- risk youth in a residential treatment settting.
EAP/EAL implements the power of equine-assisted principles and exercises to introduce therapy clients to themselves and find inner strengths and ways to keep themselves healthy and safe in their environment.
EAP/EAL is a powerful work to help people gain the companinship with the horse and learn to connect with themselves. The horses and the natural herd like behaviors are what helps people to gain or reconnect with these basic survival instincts.
Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (TFCBT): An evidenced-based program designed to help children work through past trauma.
Focuses on allowing children to gain coping skills to handle the feelings associated with trauma as well as to change the thoughts regarding themselves and the abuse.
Regardless of my training and skills, the single most important aspect of therapy is my relationship with you and how well I can work to allow you build trust and feel safe.
