Play Therapy

While most of us know the therapeutic values of play, research shows that using play as a therapeutic tool is a powerful technique for enabling children to express their thoughts and feelings in a more natural and self-empowering way. Often used for children aged 3-11 years old, play therapy provides an avenue for children to process their inner world, at a time when their language skills are not sufficient for “talk therapy.”

Certified play therapists have demonstrated the ability to integrate knowledge of child development, psychology, counseling, and the myriad of techniques employed during assessment and treatment sessions.

The benefits of play therapy include improvement of self-esteem, competency, social relationships, developmental growth, emotional regulation, and trauma resolution.
