Lighthouse Counseling & Sand Play Training Center, LLC was conceived in 2000 in a tiny office in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey by Gretchen Morgan and Mary Pat McGeehin. Their search for effective treatment led them to include the use of Sand Play Therapy, EMDR, yoga and therapeutic group work with their clients. This was in response to the expanding body of research which illustrated that the mind-body connection was integral to the healing of mental health issues. In 2004, they expanded their practice to include like-minded affiliate clinicians and moved to a larger facility in Eatontown, New Jersey.

Mary Pat and Gretchen designed the Lighthouse Sand Play Training program and are approved providers for Continuing Education for the Association for Play Therapy, The California Board of Social Sciences and the National Board of Certified Counselors. To date, they have trained over 1000 clinicians both nationally and internationally.

Mary Pat and Gretchen are members of the National Association of Social Workers, Association for Play Therapy, Sand Play Therapists of America and The East Coast Sand Play Association. All clinicians on site are EMDR trained. Mary Pat and Gretchen are Certified Clinical Supervisors for the State of New Jersey.

Social Skills Groups

Our interactive Social Skills groups use Sand Play Therapy, therapeutic games and yoga to improve socialization skills, increase comfort in social situations, enhance self esteem, promote mutual respect and empathy for others, improve peer relations, build friendships, learn relaxation techniques and body awareness. Children are grouped together by various factors, including chronological age, maturity level, gender and personality. Due to these factors, we will often allow participants slightly older or younger than the stated ages above. Please contact Toni Zachos-Kaplan at 732.380.1575 ext. 304 for group schedule.

More about this group

Coping with Addiction in Your Family

Life is more complex for a child growing up with addiction in their family. This unique group allows girls to connect with other girls who know what it is like to have a family member with a drug and/or alcohol addiction. Participants will learn coping and relaxation skills, as well as drug and alcohol education and prevention. Sand Play Therapy, yoga and hands on socialization are used to address these goals, while also seeking to raise the impacted self esteem of girls impacted by addiction. Please contact Toni Zachos-Kaplan at 732.380.1575 ext 304 for group schedule.
