Play is a child’s natural form of communication and the primary way in which a child orients him/herself to the world. NewPath Counseling group has a number of creative and dedicated therapists available to help your child explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe supportive environment. Much like an adult is able to process and work through their problems by talking to someone, children express themselves through their play. Play therapy is a developmentally appropriate medium that will allow for children to build on coping skills, explore relationships with others, increase self-esteem, problem solving and feelings identification.
