Play Therapy

Play Therapy at the Coastal Center uses a variety of play and creative arts techniques to help a young child who might be experiencing behavioral and/or emotional difficulties. These play techniques help a child to express what might be distressing and allows the parent and the clinician insight as to how best to help the child adapt and use his/her inherent strengths to soothe and cope. Strategies and techniques for parenting can be integrated for the parent and child with the information gleaned through the play therapy sessions.

Clinicians: Gigi Dunbar, Kris Eckland, Erin Harris, Melissa Kappler, Phoebe Teare
