"Play allows children to explore their whole being. Play has been proven to increase self-expression, self-regulation, self-awareness and self-efficiency. Play minimizes children's stress levels, enhances their connections to others and boosts confidence in all areas of life. "
As a child and family therapist, I offer weekly services to families looking to increase both theirs and their children's emotional regulation through interactive play. These sessions are regulated by the child themselves as they choose which activities feel most suitable to express themselves each day. My role is to help them navigate these experiences and acquire coping tools and regulation practices so they may increase their awareness of their emotions, and gain a better understanding of their own personal needs.
