Play Therapy

Our Play therapists work with children who display behavioral concerns at childcare or at home, who are working through grief and loss, anxiety, attachment concerns, or transitions such as divorce and foster care.   We also work with children who have a history of trauma including physical, sexual, or emotional abuse or neglect.   For information on what Play Therapy is, visit the Play Therapy website.

We are trained in Theraplay®, Child-centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy, Child-Parent Relational Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Therapy and are in the process of being trained in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics.
