Sage Recovery & Wellness Center offers services for children ages 6-13!
What is PlayTherapy?
Playtherapy is to children what counseling is to adults. Playtherapy utilizes play, children’s natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words.
This is typically suitable for children aged 3-12.
The toys and materials are the way in which children in playtherapy express themselves. These items serve an important role in play therapy.
Below are general guidelines we follow when selecting playroom items:
·Toys should provide variety in choice of expression
·Toys should be durable
·Toys should not be complex
·Toys should allow reality testing of limits
·Toys should allow development of positive self-image as well as self-control

We meet adolescents where they are at and affirm their self-identified goals for treatment. The therapeutic modality underpinning our outpatient services is Dialectical Behavior Therapy which promotes autonomous regulation of emotions through tangible skills and mindfulness practices.
At Sage Recovery, we believe clients are simply doing the best they can with the knowledge and skills they currently possess, and our outpatient services aim to equip individuals with a greater understanding of self and their environment in order to foster feelings of empowerment.
We also believe that our adolescents may not have caused all their problems, but they do have a responsibility to respond in a healthy way to solve them. Our holistic and trauma-informed outpatient services incorporate many other modalities such as EMDR, CBT, ACT, Mindfulness-Oriented Recovery Enhancement (MORE) and others.
Sage Recovery understands that all recovery journeys to wellness are unique and flexibility as necessary.
We also offer:
