Play Therapy

Play therapy has been shown to be effective for the following issues:

  • anger management
  • grief and loss
  • divorce
  • trauma
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • ADHD
  • academic and social development

Play Therapy works best when a safe relationship is created between the therapist and client, one in which the latter may freely and naturally express both what pleases and bothers them.

Research suggests Play Therapy for children is an effective mental health approach, regardless of age, gender, or the nature of the problem, and works best when a parent, family member, or caretaker is actively involved in the treatment process.
