Children & Play Therapy

If you have children, worked with children, or have been around children, you know that all they want to do is PLAY, PLAY, PLAY!  That is because PLAY is their language and that is how they communicate and learn about the world.   Children, especially young children, often do not have the ability and vocabulary to tell us why they are upset or why they are behaving in a specific way.  Developmentally, they think in very concrete ways that may seem silly to adults.   

Our abstract ways of thinking may confuse, scare, and frustrate them, especially when we ask them for explanations or tell them to stop behaving a certain way. The way to bridge this communication gap is through PLAY.  I use a variety of play therapy interventions designed to address the unique needs and situation of your child(ren) to help express their needs. 

For more information about the types of play and expressive therapies that I use, please contact me to determine if this would be a type of therapy that could help your child(ren).

Also, for more information about play therapy in general, please visit the Association for Play Therapy website at www.a4pt.org.
