Inspired by the children's book "Sophie's Castle" by Heather Levine, Sandcastle Family Therapy is about finding courage to build creative sand castles, even after the waves and tides of life have washed away other expectations and dreams. We utilize expressive therapy methods to help process and communicate feelings when words are hard to find.
We understand that deep and long-lasting healing happens in a family or community. We are specially trained in systems theory and providing family and marriage counselling. Therapy provided will facilitate conflict resolution, clear communication and connection in relationships.
We have training in counseling with children and teenagers. Using play, art and sand tray therapy, we give children and teenagers many ways to express and work through their problems. We collaborate and involve parents and families, because trusting relationships are the foundation of optimal mental health.
Our therapy is trauma-informed. We have therapists trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). In as little as one session, ART can help you process distressing emotions or a traumatic event through eye movement and desensitization therapy.
