Play therapy is a form of mental health counseling that makes systematic use of theoretical models to "establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development" (Association for Play Therapy, 2011, www.A4PT.org).
WHO WE SERVE
We provide individual play therapy services for children between the ages of three and ten years old. Our services are open to the community; however, we give preference to those who may not be able to access play therapy services or have the most need. We also offer filial play therapy training for parents.
SERVICES AND FEES
Sessions are generally 50 minutes and are scheduled once per week. The cost for services is $60 a semester. The typical course for play therapy is 12-20 sessions. Services are provided by trained and supervised interns as well as licensed staff.
