Play Therapy

What is Play Therapy?

With therapists known for their expertise with children, we offer play therapy, a counseling technique that is effective with children.

Play Therapy is geared toward young children (as young as two) and uses a variety of activities-such as painting, puppets, and dioramas- to establish communication with the therapist and resolve problems. Play allows the child to express emotions and problems that would be too difficult to discuss with another person.

Who Play Therapy Helps

Play therapy helps children with behavior problems, such as aggressiveness and acting out, or children who have been abused, neglected, have low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, family instability, difficulty with social and emotional adjustment, and many other problems.
