Children with Trauma, Mood Disorders, OCD, Grief and Attachment Work also benefit from an integrated approach with Sandplay Therapy and Filial Family Play Therapy, TFCBT, CBT andor animal-assisted work. Equine-assisted therapy is available in good weather with my Tenessee Walker Lady Mocha Choca Laca and my Mustang, Pistol, in a round-pen doing ground work, which will build your focus. Indoor canine-assisted work with my tiny Champion Russell terriers, Annabella, an AKC Companion Dog and Bentley, an AKC Canine Good Citizen are also confidence builders. You may spy my beautiful Dalmatians in the yard out front saying Hi!

The Sandplay Therapists of America recognizes me as a Registered Sandplay Practioner and the Play Therapy Association recognizes me as a Registered Play Therapist. EMDRIA recognizes my 2020 EMDR basic and advanced training in Trauma & SomaticPain Management with Adults and Children, as well as my consultation hours toward eventual certification.
