Making Positive Changes for You and Your Family
At Kids At Heart
At Kids at Heart, we know that what you want more than anything right now is a happy, well-functioning child. For that to happen though, you need effective support. The problem can be challenging, which can make you feel vulnerable. At Kids at heart, we believe you are doing your best and you are doing a great job! We understand that no one is perfect and no one person can do everything. That's why we provide empathetic listening, educated, and experienced feedback as well as evidenced-based methods.
Using Play Therapy and Theraplay® Techniques
Children and play are inseparable, and it is their truest form of expression. That idea is the foundation of Play Therapy at Kids at Heart - Natick!
We help kids use play as a tool to develop creative solutions to problems they may be facing. We also work with kids so they can learn to express emotion.
You can find a safe and trustworthy place to address your kid's behavioral, emotional, or cognitive challenges while working hard to create strategies, which are effective for managing your daily lives.
We Use Evidenced-Based Principles
We use evidence-based therapeutic principles for child, adolescent, adult, and family therapy used to build and enhance self-esteem, attachment, trust, and joyful engagement. With Theraplay®, the interactions focus on the four qualities essential to a child-parent relationship: structure, engagement, nurture, and challenge.
This therapeutic approach is found to work best when a parent, family member, or caregiver is involved in the treatment process. It is a practice that takes time as each child progresses through a range of stages while they make strides toward a positive mental health situation.
