"Therapy is a process of personal growth and empowerment. Ultimately, therapy requires an individual, couple, or family to commit to making meaningful changes in their behavior and ways of thinking, both of which impact the way we feel. The work that goes into therapy requires great dedication-on the part of both the client and the therapist. It is the professional relationship that develops between them that forms the foundation of the change process."

Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in West Des Moines or for a West Des Moines play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
