When it comes to therapy, children are often unable to find the right words to express how they are feeling. In many cases, what parents end up seeing is uncharacteristic or challenging behavior. While adults can verbally process their thoughts, children need toys, arts and crafts, games, etc., to find the right words to process their feelings.
Play therapy sessions consist of one on one meetings with myself and the child whereby we engage in playful activities that are geared toward helping the child identify what is bothering them and learn how to resolve their problem(s). Ultimately, play therapy can lead to
An increase in self-esteem
A reduction in fear(s)
Improvement in Socialization skills
A decrease in challenging behaviors
