Leah also practices Play Therapy and Art Therapy for children ages 4-12. Play therapy utilizes toys, art, books, etc. to allow younger children to express themselves through playing which is more intuitive to them than traditional talk therapy. Playing makes kids more comfortable in sessions and also gives them an avenue to work through problems that they might otherwise have trouble putting into words. The play allows kids to access and express their feelings and confusion/concerns; the play is also how the therapist helps them process their emotions and find new ways to cope with the problem at hand. Leah works along with families to help children translate progress in therapy to positive changes at home.
