Serving Children age three and up, using different tools of play therapy. Children of all ages may benefit from sand tray. In sand tray, various figurines are chosen by client and placed  in a tray with sand.  This works with the client's subconscious. Even the youngest child, without language skills, is able to tell their story using figurines.

For young children, using puppets in therapy sessions is helpful.  Child may feel more comfortable talking to the puppet used by the therapist, rather than directing conversation to the therapist directly.

By use of games during therapy sessions, children are helped to talk about their issues and concerns.

Expressive arts aid children in therapy also.
