Play Therapy

Play therapy is a developmentally appropriate treatment method for children ages 3 to 10. Therapists are specially trained to work with the child through play, helping the child to express feelings, work through internal conflicts, address fear and anxiety and gain insight. Play therapy can aid in the development and maintenance of coping and social skills. A variety of activities are used in the play therapy room including expressive arts, clay, sand and paint so children should come to the session in clothing that will allow them play freely.
