Play Therapy

Safe Resolution of Emotional & Behavioral Challenges

“Play is natural and spontaneous. Through play, children express emotions, master their environment, and secure themselves in the world. In play therapy, the therapist and the child exchange through the play, securing the therapeutic relationship while seeking opportunities for the safe resolution of emotional, behavioral, and system challenges. It is the compassionate, responsible approach when seeking to understand the heart of the child.”

-Teri V. Krull, LCSW

It's Not Just a Child's Play

“When we treat children’s play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that’s to be found in the creative spirit. We’re helping ourselves stay in touch with that spirit, too. It’s the things we play with and people who help us play that make a great difference in our lives.”
