Rachael began her career focused on supporting children to express what is challenging through the language of play. She has always been excited about the right-brained language of metaphors and loves communicating using stories of dragons and mice or babies, army battles and butterflies.
She has become known in Kamloops and the surrounding areas for her expertise in using play therapeutically to support children to gain confidence, ease anxiety, free themselves from trauma, move through developmental stages, manage stress in new ways, and become a more full expression of their true selves. Childhood should be fun.
Rachael is a Registered Play Therapist with both the American Association for Play Therapy and the British Columbia Play Therapy Association which indicates that has extensive course study in play therapy, thousands of hours of experience, and hours spent under the supervision of a qualified play therapy supervisor as she worked toward these designations. She is now completing course work to become a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor herself which indicates she is sanctioned to provide supervision for other play therapist’s looking to become registered.
Rachael’s schedule is often full and she is not able to take on new clients. She does work with a team of clinician’s in her private practice that also use play therapy and referrals to these therapists are recommended. Please get to know them on our group practice website.
