Mira Shah Counseling and Art Therapy
Hello! Are you looking for guidance and support for your child? Trauma in a child's life can prevent thriving in a variety of areas. I help children process and heal through Art Therapy, which is ideal in honoring experiences and giving voice to that which is not easily described in words. Research demonstrates that Art Therapy is highly effective in allowing children to process stressful and traumatic events by learning to communicate their feelings through words and regulating difficult emotions. My goal is to help your child feel as open, joyful and free as s/he ought to be.
My approach centers on three beliefs: that we can heal and thrive after experiencing difficult life events; that having nurturing relationships leads the way to healing and resilience; and that we can lessen the effects of trauma on our children through growing a safe and trusting relationship with them.
I am passionate about working with children and young adults facing but not limited to: body image, chronic illness, depression, death/dying, disabilities, grief/loss, hearing loss, life transitions, medical trauma, self-esteem, existential questioning, and personal growth. Please visit my website/email me with any questions!
