Safety and coping skills
Conflict resolution skills
Communication skills

For children, play is a natural medium of expression and can be a process that helps them organize and understand the world around them. Play Therapy is supported by decades of research. All CAPA Therapists are Registered Play Therapists or participating in training to earn that designation. Download our printable Play Therapy brochure to learn more about how Therapists use the power of play to help children heal and feel safe and supported.

CAPA Counseling Services are offered in-person at our locations in Independence and Kansas City, MO. Virtual counseling is also available. CAPA currently partners with schools in the Independence, Fort Osage, and Raytown School Districts to provide therapy services during the school day for children with barriers to scheduling and transportation.
