"You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation." ~ Plato
At Brevard Counseling, LLC, Play Therapy is at the core of our therapeutic approach. Since children use play as their main method of communication, it is an effective method of therapy that has been proven to reduce and/or resolve a variety of problems. We have a one of a kind individual dedicated Play Therapy Room stocked with therapeutic toys to allow for curative expression and movement towards healing and growth. Our Play Therapy Room is designed for children between the ages of 3-9 years old, while our Expressive Art Therapy Studio is designed for ages 10+. Depending on the circumstances, we may choose to deliver Child-Centered Play Therapy, Adlerian Play Therapy, or Prescriptive Play Therapy. Therapists at Brevard Counseling, LLC work closely with parents through on-going Parent Consultations to develop an effective treatment plan that works towards a happier and healthier life.
