Play Based Therapy

Dr. Rae-Seebach is specialized in expressive play and sand tray therapy integrated with evidence-based cognitive and behavioural strategies in the treatment of grief, loss, anxiety, mood, trauma, and concerns about death and dying.. 

Many children and youth lack the words and/or the ability to talk about problems they experience. With support and guidance, expressive play and sand tray therapy provides opportunities to explore and resolve underlying issues associated with behavioural, social and emotional struggles. Parent consultation and strategies to sustain changes achieved through treatment are integrated into this process.
