What is family therapy?
Family therapy strives to nurture change and development. It tends to view change in terms of the system of interactions between family members. It emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health.
What is play therapy?
Play therapy is a model of therapy that honors a child’s unique developmental level and looks for ways of helping in the “language” of the child – play. Play is used therapeutically to help clients, most often children ages three to 12 years, to better express themselves and resolve their problems.
