struggle more than
other children
his or her age?

We Can Help

  • Get into frequent conflicts with other children?
  • Fall apart easily in a group?
  • Seem overly competitive or very shy?
  • Get bullied by other children?
  • Have difficulty separating from you?

Play Therapy Can Help! Here’s how:

Child Play Therapy Services are geared towards families with young children (birth – age 6) who are encountering emotional, behavioral, or developmental difficulties.

Through Play Therapy, Family Therapy, Parent-Child Therapy, or Group Play Therapy, we will address the individualized needs of children with emotional and behavioral problems that may be interfering with success in a regular preschool or day-care setting.

Kids’ cognitive development happens faster than their verbal abilities up until age 12.

Play therapy allows the child to “play out” rather than “act out” her problems.

By intervening with children at a young age, we hope to be able to prevent further social, educational and emotional difficulty.

Issues addressed in child play therapy include the following:

  • Attachment and Separation Problems
  • Frequent Tantrums
  • Reactions to parental divorce
  • Grief and loss
  • Impulsivity
  • Withdrawal
  • Hyperactivity
  • Frequent aggression or disruptive behavior
  • Short Attention Span
  • Oppositional Behavior
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Early childhood trauma, including abuse and/or neglect
  • Difficulties in peer relationships
  • Excessive shyness or fearfulness
  • Difficulty with transitions from one activity to another
  • Trouble with eating or sleeping
  • Depression and other mood regulation problems
  • Emotional regression or other reactions to life stresses
