What is Play Therapy?

Children have the possibility of experiencing pain and loss in their lives just as many adults do.  Children can encounter a wide range of troubling experiences and loss: Parental divorce, death of a loved one, multiple types of abuse and neglect, etc.  Counseling provides a place where these children can work through their troubles by embarking on a healing journey of their own. 

Play therapy is used to connect with young Children because they can not express themselves the same way that adults can due to their limited vocabulary and differences in processing. * Kids often use their play as a way of communicating their feelings and emotions.  Play Therapy provides a safe, directed atmosphere that allows children a chance to explore their emotions while building self-esteem and mastering tasks.
