Couples and Family
Maintaining healthy, long-term relationships is challenging when faced with life changes, miscommunication, and conflicts.
It also makes happiness elusive.
When a family member has problems the whole family suffers, especially when it involves a child or adolescent. Therapy can help the family identify the roots of the problems and guide the family to solutions.
Couple and Family Therapy helps:
Identify and create solutions to decrease conflicts, improve interactions
Adjust together to new
challenges that arise in life
Play and Art
Two forms of Play Therapy I use are Expressive Arts Therapy and Sand Play Therapy. Both allow children and adults to express symbolically what they find difficult to express verbally. Children and adolescents often try to describe what is troubling them. They struggle finding the words. Adults may find words constraining or inadequate.
Play Therapy combined with talk” therapy is a powerful combination to help:
Increase cooperative behavior
Improve school success
