Play therapy is a way of being with the child that honors their unique developmental level and looks for ways of helping in the “language” of the child – play. They can sort through complicated feelings and use play to communicate at their own level and at their own pace, without feeling interrogated or threatened. The healthy development of the child is the primary goal.

Creativity can be expressed in many ways: through free play (children choose objects and play in their own way), drawing, painting, games, puppets, bibliotherapy, as well as age-appropriate psychoeducational experiences.
