When the waves of COVID hit last year, we all braced for safety.

Many of us completely changed how we provided play therapy services.  

Whether it has been loss of in person connection, literal loss of loved ones and friends, fear for our own well being, loss of income, having to build new tele-health play therapy services,  or re-evaluating what is most important about the playroom (virtually or in-person),  the seas of COVID have been mighty.

 As play therapists we are comfortable using metaphor to make the unmanageable feel more manageable. Using the metaphor of anchoring in the storm, we invite you into the safe harbor of our in-person classroom community to heal, repair, and rebuild connections to others as well as to your Self.   During our time together, we will guide you using play-based creative arts, movement, journaling, group activities and group discussion to reflect, rediscover and rebuild the parts of you that got lost and/or damaged in the storm.  You will leave with a greater awareness of what you have been through, where you are now, and what you need moving forward and how to use this knowledge to offer similar healing experiences to your child clients and families. 

 You will also leave knowing that you are not a boat alone in the sea, but a part of a mighty fleet that has your back.  We specifically chose the harbor as our setting to anchor in this symbolism right when you step in the doors. 

Come heal with us,

MORE REASONS TO Come TO SAN DIEGO

CREATE THE SPACE TO EXPLORE THE PAST, THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE


Over the past eighteen months, we have longed for connection. We have longed for community.  We have longed for the time and space to process all the challenges and lessons that we have been through during this time.  During this weekend, we create the space to explore the past, the present and the future - both privately and in collaboration with others.  And in doing so, we create a logbook of the things that we have learned that will guide us through the next set of waves.  It is going to be an experience for the memory books.  You are not going to want to miss this weekend!

THIS WEEKEND HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO CREATE AN ANCHOR TO YOUR SOUL.


As the world continues to be on a merry-go-round, we have yearned for stability, for peace, for connection.  We have experienced so much isolation and fear these last 18 months as our world has changed in ways we never imagined.  Jen, Lisa, and I have been dreaming of ways to find a quiet space where we can just push pause, breathe, and pull back all the pieces of ourselves that have been scattered as we have navigated this global pandemic and it’s many challenges. Each of us have been looking for our anchor - and it is through connection that we find it.This weekend has been designed to create an anchor to your soul for each one of us.  I hope you will join us!
