Play Therapy

Play is the language of children. It’s their way of communicating, learning, coping, and healing. Oftentimes, children and teens may feel nervous about seeing a therapist, but art and play can help put them at ease and make sharing their stories more comfortable for them.  To understand children and support their needs, we learn and teach through play.  Using play techniques creates a fun and nurturing environment for children. Play therapy helps your child learn and grow and they will enjoy coming sessions.  Play therapy techniques (such as art, games, and imaginative play) are all used as tools to help facilitate children and adolescents’ learning life skills such as:

  • SOCIAL SKILLS

  • COMMUNICATION SKILLS

  • PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS

  • FRUSTRATION TOLERANCE

  • ADJUSTING TO LIFE CHANGES SUCH AS A MOVE, DIVORCE OR LOSS
