Play Therapy

In play therapy, toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s language.

– Dr. Garry Landreth

Play is a child’s natural means of communication and allows us to access their inner world. Play therapy is a dynamic interpersonal relationship between a child and a therapist trained in play therapy practice. In the context of a safe relationship, a play therapist sets the stage for children to fully express and explore their sense of self (feelings, thoughts, experiences, and behaviors) through play, towards optimal growth, development, and healing.
