THERAPY FOR CHILDREN & TEENS
Young children express themselves and work out problems through play. Play Therapy and Sand Play Therapy offer an organic way for children to feel better about themselves, interact socially with greater skill and ease, increase their self expressive abilities, and gain greater self control.
As children move into the tween and teen years, therapy may become more talk and less play. Counseling now includes, but is not limited to role playing, thinking out loud, examining consequences of past behaviors and anticipating consequences of planned behaviors, practicing social skills, and understanding how past events play out in current moods and behaviors. Children this age often benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy treatment approaches.
