Parenting Guidance Consultations
Play is not only a pivotal part of development but also a mode of nonverbal communication. For children, it is a way of processing life experiences.
Expressive Arts Therapy is a way for children/adolescents to process and translate nonverbal, body/emotion-based experiences into a verbal format to improve communication + understanding of what is happening on the inside. EAT externalizes their life stressors + experiences from the Inside-Out.
Parenting Guidance Consultations empower parents with tips and tools gained from their child's individual sessions:
to increase positive communication + interactions
to strengthen the connection + improve the overall relationship
between parent and the child.
