Embrace the Support of Play Therapy in Natick, MA
Children and play are inseparable, and it is their truest medium of expression. That tenet is the foundation of play therapy in Natick, MA, which is offered by Registered Play Therapist Rita Vatcher.
Rita helps children use play as a tool to develop creative solutions to problems they may be facing. She also works with children so that they can learn to express emotion through play.
You can trust her to address your child’s behavioral, emotional, or cognitive challenges while working hard with your child and you to create strategies which are effective for managing your daily lives.
Based on Solid Principles
As a mental health counselor, Rita’s approach is based upon Theraplay® principles. This is a child and family therapy for building and enhancing self-esteem, attachment, trust, and joyful engagement. Interactions during this therapy focus on four qualities which are 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 actively involved in the treatment process. It is a practice which takes time as each child progresses through a range of stages while they make strides toward a positive mental health situation.
