It is a happy talent to know how to play.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Why Play Therapy?
Sometimes talk therapy does not meet the needs of clients. This is especially true when it comes to children, who do not have the developmental capacity or language for talk therapy. Play is the language of children. Through Play Therapy, children learn to communicate with others, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways of relating to others.
Play Therapy differs from regular play in that the Play Therapist helps children to address and resolve their own problems. Play therapy builds on the natural way that children learn about themselves and their relationships in the world around them.
