Play Therapy in Marietta for Children

play therapy marietta gaPlay therapy helps children express what is bothering them when they do not have the words or verbal ability to adequately express thoughts and feelings.

Through play, children are able to work through what is troubling them. We are able to help children learn healthier and more adaptive behaviors.

The relationship that develops between the child and  therapist during sessions provides a repairative emotional experience lending to healing and strengthening the child’s sense of self.

In support of a child’s growth and healing in play therapy, we work very closely with parents and often other family members in order to facilitate positive shifts in the parent–child relationships and the whole family dynamic.play therapy marietta ga

We work with children ages 2 to 11 using play therapy. For older children and even adults we often use sand tray therapy and some play techniques to transcend the limitations of language.
