Gaming Approaches Towards Education (G.A.T.E.) ***

Years ago, as therapist working in the home, we realized that gaming should not be limited to building rapport. Gaming could serve a greater purpose, it could create opportunities for families to come together, play together.

We found that the best games place emphasis on everyone's strengths. They make us think, feel, and adapt to different situations. We believe play can become practice for everyday life.

Our programs use tools such as board gaming, storytelling, role playing, sand tray, and Expressive arts in combination with a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy and AutPlay Therapy (Autism Play). This is for Child, Adolescent and Adult, depending on the client's need. We offer Individual and Group therapy. Social Skills development groups are also a option for individuals who need to learn and practice their social skills in a safe environment.
