Therapy for children in Denver
Helping children communicate their inner world through the language of play.
Founded by Andrea Forlina, LCSW, RPT-S, EPT/S in 2016, Healing Through Play provides children ages 3 to 11 a space to journey from emotional pain to healing. As adults, it can be easy for us to make assumptions about what a child needs, yet children have demonstrated time and again that they are on their own quest for health and only they can express their perceptions on life dilemmas. Communicating perceptions verbally is challenging for children, while play – and the metaphors demonstrated through play, are an accessible means of expression. During play therapy sessions, children process their thoughts and feelings and are more able to communicate their inner world through the language of play. Furthermore, parents/guardians who partner with their child’s therapist are empowered to make shifts that are helpful to the child and the whole family.
