I work with children as young as age four. In addition to family therapy, play therapy is the method I use to engage younger children on an individual basis. Younger children may have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings in words, but can express them through drawing, painting, storytelling, games, as well as symbolic play with puppets, dolls, etc. Play therapy activities depend on the child's developmental age and the therapy goals. Although I nearly always use play therapy techniques with younger children, play therapy may also be appropriate with many older children.
