Play Therapy

Play Therapy

  • Puppet
  • Doll Family
  • Sand Therapy
  • Child-centered play room
  • Interactive hands-on activities
  • Theraplay (improving attachment)
  • Miniatures: genograms and sandworlds

Play therapy is not just for children anymore. I will use interactive activities, art, sand therapy, clay, and other creative techniques to increase clients’ mental health.
Research suggests that Play Therapy is an effective mental health approach, regardless of age, gender, or the nature of the problem.

Play is a natural process

  • builds trust and mastery
  • fosters learning and acceptable behaviors
  • regulates emotions reduces anxieties
  • promotes creative thinking and problem-solving
  • encourages open communication
  • elevates spirit and self-esteem

“Licensed professionals therapeutically use play to help clients’ better process their experiences and develop more effective strategies for managing their worlds.  When using play therapy techniques clients express thoughts and feelings that might otherwise remain hidden.”
