Children often experience big emotions such as anger, sadness, and grief but they haven’t yet developed the cognitive ability to understand or express exactly what they are feeling. This often leads to disruptions in the home, school or even daycare. Play therapy is a proven therapeutic modality that assists children with many issues they are faced with today.
This is where a trained play therapist comes in! We enter your child’s world from his perspective and allow him to guide the play. We begin to identify and understand what your child is experiencing and aid you and your child with tools through this tricky time. With a trained play therapist, play therapy can be an effective treatment to help the child grow, thrive and heal. At Andover Family Counseling, our Registered Play Therapist can walk you through every step of your play therapy journey.
