What is Play Therapy?
Play therapy is the art of understanding, interpreting, engaging, and enjoying play with children. Children’s play is the most natural way that children express their feelings, thoughts, and emotions.
A play therapist is trained specifically to understand child’s play, and s/he is trained to understand the free associations that children make while moving from toy to toy. A play therapist is trained to understand the symbolism behind each toy with which the child plays, and is trained to help a child understand his/her innermost feelings and thoughts. The play therapist is also specifically trained to use a myriad of theoretical orientations to help children and their families fully address and resolve painful life situations.
When calling for the first time if you do not reach a receptionist, please leave a message for Allan Gonsher. He will return your call and help match you with the best doctor/therapist for you and your child/family. Before your first appointment, please go to our Client Forms page and print and complete the forms provided and bring them with you to the first appointment along with a copy of your insurance card.
We accept most major insurance plans. However, you will want to check with your insurance company before coming to determine if the therapist/doctor you will be seeing is listed as “in network,” confirm your coverage for behavioral health and find out if authorization is needed.
