Play is the primary language of children. During play therapy, children create play that resembles the difficult or traumatic experiences they are struggling with internally. When facilitated by a trained play therapist, the play becomes focused on the purposes of emotional healing. This leads to a reduction of symptoms (i.e. acting out and aggressive behaviors, somatic complaints, withdrawal or regression, etc.) and the reestablishment of balance in the child’s sense of well-being.
At the Institute, our therapists have a wide variety of backgrounds and licensure in counseling, but all are trained in a cutting-edge form of play therapy called Synergetic Play Therapy. To schedule a session for your child, please contact us at 720-458-9597. You will be asked to do a short ten-minute phone intake in order for us to help you get connected with the best therapist to best support your needs.
