Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
EFT is a quick and effective method for clearing negative emotion from the mind as well as the body. It has been used extensively for releasing the emotions of anger, fear, anxiety, panic, sadness, guilt, blame, bitterness and stress as well as for traumatic events such as child abuse, sexual assault, war, domestic violence, accidents, loss and more. EFT can also be used to work through blocks (beliefs) that are preventing you from creating the life you want—relationships, career, purpose—giving you clarity and courage to pursue your dreams. Please visit The EFT Universe website for further information and videos on EFT.
Play therapy is an effective way in which children can portray and express their thoughts, feelings, and attitudes within a therapeutic setting. A variety of techniques can be utilized in individual sessions, group sessions, and even family sessions to allow children the freedom to share their world and communicate in a manner that is most appropriate. Play therapy can be utilized to teach children life skills as well as therapuetically navigate and address life difficulties. Such difficulties include, but are not limited to: emotional problems, pervasive development disorders, mental health diagnoses, relocation, parental divorce, abuse and neglect, grief, trauma, foster/adoption issues, chronic illness, social difficulties, hyperactivity, disabilities and adjustments.
