Play Therapy 

Play is the language of children!

 In Play Therapy, toys are the child's words and play is their language.  Play therapy is the best type of therapy for  toddlers, elementary aged children and some middle school children.

Talk Therapy

Talk therapy is the main type of therapy used with adolescents.  However, some children do better with talk therapy than play therapy.  In talk therapy, individuals have the ability to talk through their problems with a therapist, without feeling judged.

Group Therapy 

Group therapy is a beneficial type of therapy; providing a sense of belonging to the group members. Group therapy allows the therapist to see first hand how each person interacts with the other members, and how they respond in social situations.
