At Therapy on the Square, we provide counseling services for children of all ages. For young children, play therapy is the most developmentally appropriate counseling method. In the presence of a caring and accepting therapist, the toys become the children’s words, allowing them to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a way that is freeing and not frustrating. Through this positive relationship the therapist can help children build confidence, social skills, communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and to make better behavior choices. At Therapy on the Square we see children in play therapy both individually and in small groups, depending on the needs of the children.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may find our child counseling services helpful. To learn more about play therapy, please see these videos for an overview.
