Our Approach

Sunshine Institute believes that personal growth can be fostered in a multitude of settings. In addition to a traditional talk therapy approach, Sunshine Institute offers sensory-rich environments designed to help clients explore, interact, and grow. 

Our Sensory Room includes a crash pad, jump-a-roo, ball pit, balance beam, gymnastics bar, platform swing, and many more items constantly being added and interchanged to keep it exciting! For a total sensory experience, this room features aromatherapy, soothing sounds, and a starlight projector and a colorful LED bubble wall aquarium for lighting.

Other therapies, techniques, and interventions commonly practiced by Sunshine therapists include play therapy, group therapy, movement-based group therapy, movement-based individual therapy including yoga and “walk and talk” sessions, expressive arts, mindfulness, role-playing, sensory work, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), psychoeducation, motivational interviewing, person-centered therapy, animal-assisted therapy, bibliotherapy, and more!
