DO YOU OFFER "IN PERSON" PLAY SERVICES?
Currently and given our pandemic situation, all services are provided virtually using a HIPAA compliant Telehealth platform. All you need is an internet connected electronic device with a camera (Smart Phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer)
Virtual Play Therapy not only is POSSIBLE, but it is just as fun and therapeutic as "in person" Play Therapy!
However, virtual Play Therapy may not be the most appropriate approach for every child. My professional experience led me to only consider children over the age of 6 for Virtual Play Therapy, however for children under this age much of the work is done with the parent/guardian, so services may still be indicated.
A 15 minute free consultation to determine whether my services would meet your child's needs. For those over 6 there are different factors that I would consider such as the child's ability to connect through the screen, the child's learning preference, diagnosis, the severity of the presented symptoms, etc...
For some children Virtual Play therapy can be an even better approach than in person Play Therapy! For example a child who enjoys computer engagement, or a child with social anxiety or separation anxiety virtual Play Therapy may be the best therapeutic option.
Virtual Play Therapy offers an tremendous variety of virtual activities and games that you can be used with children based on their preferences, strengths, abilities and needs, including Virtual Sandtray!
