Play Therapy

Is your child struggling ?

Is your child struggling with the ebbs and flows of life? Perhaps they act out or go from 0 to 100 miles per hour with anger or anxiety. Or maybe your child that turns inward with sadness and doubt that feel insurmountable. Could your child use a guide for how to walk through complex nuances of school, family, and home? Whatever your child is wrestling with, it can leave any parent feeling lost in the fog without answers for how to care well.

We know parenting well is a challenge for everyone, and at Rivers Edge our team of trained counselors is here for you. Our counselors can equip your child with ways to cope with the difficulties their facing, while also going deeper to guide them to lasting impact.

Our individual therapists are trained in a wide variety of play therapy including but not limited to Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), Art Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing (EMDR), and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Whatever techniques work best for your child, our play therapy is a focused work of healing and health from the inside out.

If now is the time for your child to start play therapy, or if you have more questions about if this is the right fit, we would love to hear from you. Call or email us to book your appointment or consultation.

    While everyone goes through challenges, you don’t have to walk through these challenges alone. Sometimes it helps to have an ear to make us feel seen and heard, and who can experience our emotions with us.
