Sand tray is a safe, powerful, and containing space where you can create worlds or scenes that symbolically represent situations and feelings in your life. The experience of creating and processing sand trays facilitates moving beyond places of feeling stuck, allowing them to be transformed. Sand trays involve the therapeutic use of a collection of miniatures. It offers a projective mode of therapy where the sandtray and the miniatures become the medium of communication. It is client directed, while the therapist takes on a witness role during creation & a facilitator role during processing. The process promotes safety and control so that emotionally charged issues can be addressed.
Art is an expressive healing modality with forms that are as varied as the individuals that create it. Whether exploring clay, creating mandalas, collaging, painting, coloring, or mask making, art is a beautiful way to express oneself and work through challenging thoughts, feelings & situations. When utilizing therapeutic art, it's more about the process of creating and meaning behind the art that the product, so specific art talent or previous experience is not required!
Reiki (pronounces ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing modality used for restoring balance & ease to living beings. It is a gentle, hands-on (or off) technique used to accelerate the body's natural ability to reduce stress, relax, & heal itself on the physical, emotional, mental & spiritual levels. As this intelligent energy clears & balances the chakras, or energy centers in the body, it supports the mind, body and spirit in returning to its natural state of balance, reactivating the body's natural ability to heal itself. Usui Reiki sessions often bring about a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing, & can be used in combination with therapy or other healing modalities.
Meditation & Mindfulness
Meditation, breathing practices, mindfulness exercises & yoga postures are wonderful ways to calm & settle the "mind stuff," and can support individuals seeking relief from anxiety. Yoga in all its many forms is a beautiful practice that any body can dive into.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) / Tapping
EFT is a gentle tapping along acupressure meridian points that can support the mind, body & emotions to find deeper balance, calmer states, and an effective way to process & release emotions.
