Play Therapy Works

If your child is struggling in any way, it’s natural to feel discouraged and even hopeless at times. It is time now for you to breathe a big sigh of relief, because there is such comfort and reassurance in knowing that the challenges you are concerned about CAN be overcome!  Play Therapy is not only the most developmentally appropriate therapy for children under age 12, it is also the most enjoyable!  Children play during their therapy sessions and love coming to their “special time that is just for them” each week.
