I am an Expressive Arts/Play Therapist and am always creating new tools to use with my clients! Maybe you can use them too?
I am all about having fun and sneaking in those teaching moments! I get down on the kids level and am pretty "hip with the lingo" as I often have the same childish heart and interests as they do.
Whenever I start with new clients, I tell them to simply refer to me as "the lady with purple hair" especially when they have trouble remembering my name. At this point, I even use it as my usernames for the games I play with clients!
I have a Masters of Art in Clinical Mental Health Counselor with a specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy (Intermodal) B.S. in Psychology B.S. in Theatre (concentration in Musical Theatre and Directing/Performance) B.A. in Liberal Arts (concentration in Fine and Performing Arts)
