An important aspect of counseling is meeting a person where they are. For children, traditional conversation will not allow a child to fully express themselves. Play is the language of children. through play therapy and expressive art therapy, children are given the opportunity to communicate through these avenues and process their trauma, thoughts and feelings and allow me to meet them where they are. In turn this allows me to communicate with the family system the most effective ways to support their child during difficult times.
