“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing.” -Charles Schaefer
We believe that every child is perfect just they way they are. And we understand that because we are alive challenges arise and children and parents want support. Play therapy might be right for your child if they are experiencing:
- Separation anxiety
- Sleep issues
- Issues at school
- Low self-esteem
- Potty training issues
- Other childhood issues…
Play therapy gives your child a space to express themselves in their own language, play. Since children do not fully express themselves using language until much later in life, they often communicate through actions and behaviors. Play is a clear way to bring context and “language” to these actions and behaviors. Being trained in the language of play, the therapist takes the experience of what your child is saying and translates that experience back to you.
Through the process your child feels fully seen and heard and they can begin to transform their challenges into their greatest strengths.
Adults & Adolescents
Yes, adults and adolescents can benefit from play therapy! While not everyone will necessarily be playing with toys, we do approach individual therapy through the spirit of play, light-hearted and creative. Consider play therapy as an option if you are an adult or adolescent experiencing:
- Relationship issues
- Low self-esteem
We believe that every individual is moving toward health the best way they know how. Through the therapy process we will awaken your inner wisdom and re-develop a close relationship with yourself. In doing so we believe you open yourself to deeper relationships with those around you.
