Elizabeth Kay MA

Expressive Arts Therapist, Horticultural Therapist

ABOUT

I am an art and garden therapist in Modiin. I work with children and adolescents who are dealing with an array of emotional challenges such as anxiety, fears, stress, anger management, and trauma. My center, Hachamama Shel Elizabeth, lies within a beautiful garden center, a relaxing and gentle environment where one can feel safe and secure while dealing with one’s innermost feelings. I work with many different art materials in addition to the garden where we plant and grow.

Some children and adolescents find it difficult to express their feelings in words. Through creative work, they can find a way to reconnect with their inner emotions. Once these emotions emerge then we can find the words to express them. The garden helps my clients connect with nature and the needs of the plants they grow and tend. Through this work they can relate to their own needs, within a calm and quiet setting.

I am currently opening my services to senior citizens and have hours in the morning for this clientele. I believe in the importance of creativity to stimulate the senses and encourage an active life. My center has a beautiful art room and sun filled terrace where everyone can plant in pots or in raised beds and enjoy the active gardening in the way that suits their needs.
