We Offer Play Therapy

Play Therapy is a form of counseling or psychotherapy in which play is used as means of helping children express or communicate their feelings. We work in a therapeutic playroom with modalities such as sand, art, puppetry, dolls and many other tools. Play Therapy is designed to allow children to communicate their inner most worlds, through what is natural to them, Play.

We Offer Theraplay ®

Theraplay is a child and family therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement. It is based on the natural patterns of playful, healthy interaction between parent and child and is personal, physical, and fun. Theraplay interactions focus on four essential qualities found in parent-child relationships: Structure, Engagement, Nurture, and Challenge. Theraplay sessions create an active, emotional connection between the child and parent or caregiver, resulting in a changed view of the self as worthy and lovable and of relationships as positive and rewarding.
