Play Therapy

Play Therapy is a form of therapy that allows the child to play in the presence of a therapist who observes and interprets their play to help them resolve anxiety, conflict, and the difficult feelings they can’t otherwise express.

“Often, children are unable to verbally express what they are feeling;
thus, in play therapy toys serve as children’s words and play as their language”
Garry Landreth.
