Children

What is Therapy Like for Children?

Children don’t often share their emotions as an adult would in the therapy setting. Our therapists are trained to interact with your child in a way that meets their unique emotional needs.

Play therapy is used as a tool to help children express and work through their struggles. Play therapy creates a safe and empathetic atmosphere where children can express themselves, try new things, understand their emotions, and build self-esteem. Play therapy gives children an opportunity to explore and open up.

Depending on the child’s preferences, a variety of games, toys, sand, and art supplies are used in order to help the child to express their emotional concerns.

These concerns may include:

  • Anxiety (including phobias, selective mutism, bedtime worry, and school anxiety)
  • Depression/sadness
  • Trauma
  • Parental divorce
  • ADHD
  • Behavioral struggles
  • School issues
  • Stress
  • Anger/aggression
  • Grief

HeartLife therapists have the experience to bring hope and relief to the heart of the child by utilizing a Christian foundation and perspective.
