Play Therapy

Play Therapy and Counseling Services in Alpharetta

When your child is struggling it can be very difficult to know what the best form of counseling would be. Some parents worry that traditional talking counseling may make it harder for their children. We at Thriveworks Alpharetta understand, and would like to introduce you to the concept of play therapy.

Play therapy is a fun and highly effective model of treatment for children ages 3-12. It provides a safe, non-threatening, therapeutic experience for children to express themselves in a manner that feels comfortable and natural to them. Young children may not have the verbal skills to thoroughly express what is troubling them. Older children may be reluctant, or not feel able, to speak about these things. Play therapy gives them a voice and an outlet to communicate, process, and resolve the stressors in their lives.

Our play therapists can help with a wide variety of concerns including:

  • Abuse and trauma
  • ADHD
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety and fears
  • Assessment needs
  • Behavior issues
  • Bullying
  • Depression
  • Divorce
  • Domestic violence
  • Emotional concerns
  • Grief and loss
  • Illness of self or a loved one
  • Life changes, such as a move, new baby in the family, or change in family dynamic
  • Peer and social concerns

 

We welcome you to call Thriveworks Alpharetta at 770-284-9252 and learn about the many benefits of Play Therapy and how it can be a most useful resource for your child.
