play therapy

Play therapy is an evidence based treatment modality that allows children to express their feelings through toys rather than words. Play is a critical part of child development and a natural form of expression for children. Play relieves stress and boredom, connects us to others, inspires creative thinking, regulates our feelings, and boosts our self-esteem. Children learn to work through problems, master skills, and increase overall frustration tolerance through play. 

Benefits of Play Therapy:

  • Increase ability to tolerate and express feelings

  • Develop problem solving skills and coping skills

  • Build social and relational skills

  • Build self-esteem and self-efficacy

  • Cultivate empathy and respect for others

  • Mastery of developmental milestones

  • Increase frustration tolerance and regulate feelings
