Being a kid can be hard when you’re navigating social, emotional, and behavioral changes. We’re here to help. We work with children and adolescents ages 3-20.
Art Therapy is a form of expressive therapy taking the creative process of making art to improve a person's mental and emotional well-being.
Play Therapy uses the natural act of playing as a way to help children communicate or express their feelings.
At Thrive we have highly educated and licensed professionals who can support your child with any challenge they are facing using talk therapy, play therapy or art therapy.
How do Art Therapy and Play Therapy work?
We use a combination of evidence-based treatments including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, and art therapy.
The first session is between the parent(s) and the therapist, without the child. The purpose of this session is for us to gather information that will help us assess, diagnose, or treat your child.
The second session begins with the parent, child, and therapist. Confidentiality is discussed and the limits are established. After this occurs, the parent(s) are asked to wait in the reception while the therapist and child meet.
Parents play a crucial role in this process, so we are here to support you too. Learn more about our parenting services.
