Play Therapy

The traditional approach of sitting down and talking to a therapist can be overwhelming, especially for young children. One of the best ways to communicate and connect with a child, is through play.

 

What is Play Therapy?

Play Therapy is used by therapists to help children express what is troubling them. Our therapists use books, games, art and/or play to build relationships and help our youngest clients explore, communicate and safely experience the difficulties they are working through.
