What Is Play Therapy?

Make an appointment at Collaborate Counseling in Centennial, CO

Do you ever wish you could relate to a child on a more basic level? You can! Play is a child’s language. With play therapy, your child can express themselves using their natural language—the language of play.

Play therapy gives your child the chance to engage in storytelling, puppet play, music, dance, art and board games. During this time, a therapist can observe your child’s feelings and difficulties, including relationships with family.
