Services

At PlayTime! A Therapy Center, we utilize a variety of methods/tools to assist our clients with reaching their goals and finding their "happy." In addition to talk therapy, we use play therapy, art therapy, music therapy, drama therapy (and more!) to help each child and family work towards feeling better. 

Individual, Family and Group Therapy  
We offer appointments Monday through Saturday during the morning, afternoon and evening hours in order to better serve the needs of the families with which we work. Sessions are scheduled by appointment only, so please call ahead. We provide most sessions in our Douglasville office, however we will provide services "on location" for special circumstances.
 
Individual therapy sessions are conducted between client and therapist only. This type of session allows for more in-depth treatment of therapeutic issues such as experience with trauma, emotional/mood disturbances, behavior problems, anxiety, problems adjusting to life's changes/challenges, unhealthy social skills, etc. 
 
Family therapy sessions are held with the therapist, client and others identified as family members for that client. These sessions are recommended for all clients currently receiving individual or group therapy services, however they may be conducted with families not currently enrolled in other PlayTime! A Therapy Center services. Family therapy allows families to work together to process and move through barriers that exist within the family unit. 
 
Group therapy is offered periodically. Announcements for groups can be found below or by contacting us. 

After-School Therapy Program (ASTP)/Summer Therapy Program (STP)
The PlayTime! A Therapy Center After-School Therapy Program is ideal for children ages 5 to 11 years who demonstrate behavior problems and/or emotional issues. After School Therapy Program is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Children are picked up from local schools and transported to PlayTime! A Therapy Center. Please contact us to reserve a space for your child. Drop-in spaces are offered on a space-available basis. This group features group therapy, structured group play, calming activities, talk, music, art or other activities, as well as a snack. During the summer, our After School Therapy Program will be offered as a day camp.
