Filial Therapy

If you would rather not have your child come into the office to see their therapist and prefer to keep them at home, please consider telehealth supplemented with Filial Therapy—a form of play therapy facilitated by a parent at home.

Please note that not all insurances cover telehealth. Please contact your provider to ensure that they will pay for the session.

What is Filial Therapy?

Filial Therapy is an empirically proven way to teach parents to administer play therapy to their children at home.

What will you need?

When using our telehealth option, a therapist can coach parents and even participate in sessions while you and your child are in the comfort of your own home.

You will need a container to put the toys in, a blanket or small tarp to distinguish a play space, and some of the toys or objects on the following list:
