Play Therapy

Play Therapy

Play is the innate language of children, providing a powerful avenue for self-expression. Play has a profound impact on communication, emotional well-being, relationships, and the development of essential personal strengths, including self-esteem and self-regulation.

Our specifically-trained therapists leverage play therapy to guide children in expressing their feelings, addressing traumas, enhancing problem-solving skills, and fostering resilience. Through extensive training in non-directive play therapy techniques, our therapists skillfully use metaphor and pretend play to help children gain mastery over painful feelings and experiences.

At Citrine Psychological Services, we believe in the transformative potential of play, providing a supportive environment where children can explore and navigate their emotions in a way that is both therapeutic and empowering.

Play therapy is most often used for children ages 3-12. As part of the play therapy process our therapists also require parents participate in parent sessions which helps provide support and guidance to parents in helping to improve their child's wellbeing.

Therapy for teens in Woodbury, MN

Therapy for Teens

Adolescence is a transformative period marked by a myriad of pressures and challenges that can significantly impact daily life. Teens, while seeking autonomy, are still honing the skills needed to navigate these complexities. At Citrine Psychological Services we understand the diverse range of difficulties teenagers may encounter, such as social media issues, bullying, self-image concerns, depression, anxiety, academic stress, and challenges in family or peer relationships.

Recognizing that teens may not always vocalize their need for help and may even resist adult support, our therapists prioritize the establishment of a strong and trusting relationship. This relationship empowers teenagers to play an active role in their treatment journey. Our therapists employ a personalized approach, tailoring therapeutic interventions to each teen's unique needs. This may include traditional talk therapy, as well as creative modalities like sand tray, art, or somatic techniques, ensuring a holistic and effective therapeutic experience.

Family Therapy

Every family is distinctive, with its own dynamics and challenges. Family counseling, or therapy, serves as a valuable resource to support and enhance the family system, fostering improved communication, reconnection, shifts in perception, and the promotion of healthy functioning. Our therapists engage collaboratively with families to strengthen their bonds and cultivate a more cohesive unit.

Family Therapy proves beneficial in a variety of situations, including but not limited to changes in blended families, navigating through family situations causing anger, grief, or stress, coping with the loss of a family member, dealing with the illness of a family member, addressing sibling rivalry, managing conduct disorders, tackling school-related issues, and addressing mood disorders.
