Play is used as a means by which the therapist may be able to engage with these children. Each weekly session lasts 50 minutes. Parenting sessions with and without the child can also be offered as part of the child’s therapeutic journey. Play therapy can be used to treat: depression, anxiety, social difficulties, bullying, divorced parents, academic decline, nightmares/disturbed sleep, physical illness, sexual abuse, trauma, sibling tension/stress, problem biting, separation anxiety, autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing issues and many other life situations.

For many families, family therapy can be used to resolve certain issues within a family dynamic or relationship. Common reasons for family therapy include: aging, especially its effects on the family; the effects of addiction on the family; anger management/conflict resolution; the challenges of blended and blended families; caregiving issues; co-parenting, single parenting and visitation; cultural and multicultural issues; divorced; families of chronically mentally ill; family challenges with children with developmental variations or physical limitations; families with children and adolescents/adolescents and all the complexities related to parenthood; job loss or retirement; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) issues; life stage transitions – birth of a child, separation, divorce or remarriage; loss and grief; parent-child relationships throughout life; parenting for people with past trauma; single parent/adolescent conflict; stress caused by illness, disability or death; and more.
