Children & Adolescents

Young people are welcomed at Urban Playology.

When youth are gay.ecclectic.lesbian.kinesthetic.gender non-conforming.transgendered.questioning.gender fluid.the list goes on, life is, to say the least, colorful.

When they are hurting, the seeds of resilency are still there. At Urban Playology, we help families water those seeds.

Children tend to share their inner-most thoughts & feelings through play. So we provide trauma-integrative play therapy, coupled with art-based interventions for children.

Our work with adolescents typically invites expressive arts along with integrative, eclectic talk therapy.

Optimal outcomes occur when caregivers & key stakeholders (adults who influence how young people view themselves in the world) actively engage in all phases of the therapeutic process.
