"You've tried everything and your child is still scared or angry and think they can't change. I work with children ages 3-13 to feel better and get along. They're not to blame for what's happened in their lives but do need to take responsibility for their actions. I support kids in not feeling broken or thinking they are "bad". I use play, art projects and stories to help them express feelings. I teach them skills to understand and manage their feelings and teach them to share their feelings to get support and feel safe."

Play Therapy
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 Asheville or for an Asheville 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Asheville are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Asheville you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Asheville and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Asheville or family therapy in Asheville.
