Why Play Therapy?

Play can be incredibly powerful. It can teach children how to understand and express thoughts and feelings, learn to solve problems, and modify their behavior. Through the power of play, I use games, art, sandtrays, and other toys to create a safe place for children to learn new skills, manage their emotions, and develop resiliency. For more information on play therapy and the power of play, please visit the Association of Play Therapy website.
