Play Based Therapy

Dr. Rae-Seebach is specialized in expressive play and sand tray therapy integrated with evidence-based cognitive and behavioural strategies (as needed) in the treatment of mood, anxiety, attachment, and trauma based challenges.

Many children and youth lack the words or ability to talk about problems they experience.  With support and guidance, expressive play and sand tray therapy provides an opportunity to explore and resolve underlying issues associated with behavioural, social and emotional difficulties. Strategies to sustain and maintain changes achieved through treatment are integrated in this process.
