Dr. Eliana Gil

My life's work has focused on helping traumatized children and their families to re-establish or fortify safe and secure relationships, regain a sense of mastery and control, and view life as potentially rewarding and nurturing.

I was honored to work directly with children for many decades and currently work to support and guide therapists who are devoting their lives to assisting high-risk families in need.

I am committed to sharing what I've learned over the years. In particular, I help young and seasoned clinicians provide an integrated therapy approach which includes an array of trauma-informed interventions . These interventions include play, art, and sand therapies, along with cognitive behavioral techniques.

Therapy may be more important than ever during this time of COVID-19. I've collected some ideas about tele-health and activities which will engage children during this difficult time; you download them here

Training and Webinars

I believe in experiential learning and make every effort to provide trainings to small groups of professionals who can try out a broad range of interactive, creative, and dynamic activities. As they engage in them, they more fully understand the power and depth of integrated, trauma-informed approaches.

Supervision & Mentoring

I take supervision very seriously and limit my supervision to a few supervisees per year. I provide supervision for play therapists seeking their RPT's as well as MFT students seeking marriage and family therapy hours for licensure.  I am a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor and an Approved AAMFT Supervisor.
