Play therapy helps kids work through worries, feelings
Center City Counseling Clinic is unique in its ability to offer play therapy in its work with young children. Play therapy is designed with selected toys that utilize the child's ability to enact the feelings and issues with which they are struggling, and do not yet have words to describe.
Research-based, play therapy assists children in becoming responsible for their behaviors, develop creative solutions to their own issues and experiences as well as to learn and appropriately express their emotions.
