Foundations Counseling understands that children communicate differently than adults, which is why we offer play therapy in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. Does your child anger easily, act disrespectful or defiant, lack self-confidence, or suffer from something traumatic that happened? Wouldn’t you like to see your child thrive, grow, and feel happy about themselves and their behavior?
Play therapy is a tool that clinicians use to help kids express their feelings. When children are hurting or experiencing change, they often express much of what they need to work through via their imagination and in their play.
Play therapy provides a safe and healthy place where children can work through confusion, anxiety, anger, grief, and other common emotions. Our play therapy allows children to emerge resilient and resourceful – with better coping skills and a healthy world view.
A trained play therapist understands the metaphorical content of a child’s play, and strives to help the child express his or her needs and discover solutions in a safe, therapeutic environment. Play is the child’s natural method of learning, developing, and expressing feelings. Play therapy gives children the opportunity to use the power of their own natural creativity and imagination to heal and grow.
What You Can Expect with Play Therapy
At Foundations Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, our approach to play therapy is designed to be comfortable, private, friendly, and nonthreatening for children and families. Our offices offer a safe place for children and families to grow, without the discomfort you or your child might feel if you went to a psychiatric hospital or public agency for counseling.
We can help you better understand your children, help them better understand you, and help them grow into happy, vibrant individuals. We see parents as important allies in the play therapy process because they support and enhance the work their child does in play therapy sessions. Child therapists meet regularly with parents to learn what is happening in the child’s life, to share important observations, and to give suggestions on how parents can support their child’s therapy.
