Benefits of Play Therapy

Children may experience an increased sense of self-worth, emotional regulation and responsibility for their actions.  They can explore and or try out new skills  possibly resulting in a better understanding of social interactions.

What is Play Therapy?

Play is the child’s language and …

It expands self-expression, self-knowledge, self-actualization

and self-efficacy. Play relieves feelings of stress, connects us to people in a positive way, stimulates creative thinking and exploration, regulates our emotions, and increases self-confidence.

difficulty in school, family,  social or community settings:

Stressful Events; Grief and Loss
