Art Therapy A helpful means of expression that is often used in conjunction with play therapy or talk therapy for children of all ages. Talk Therapy The therapy of choice for children who can adequately express their experiences and emotions verbally.

When necessary, a counselor may attend court hearings as an advocate for the child.
