Welcome to Calgary’s spark-tacular psychology clinic for Superhero kids and families!
We believe that every child is a Superhero. Every child has a special Superpower and stars in their own Superhero story. Kids don’t have to wait until they grow up to become Superheroes.
Our child therapists spark kids’ joy of play to help Calgary kids grow and thrive as unique, emPOWERed, joyful Superheroes.
We use play therapy because play is how kids communicate—an ideal way to connect with kids at their (fun and amazing!) level. Play therapy is much more than ordinary play; it is a structured, systematic, evidence-based, specialized therapeutic approach. Play therapy shows our child therapists where your child is in their development. Using play therapy, we can track play themes to discover how your child views themselves, others, and their place in the world. We use insights gleaned through play therapy to connect with your unique Superhero child, emPOWER them to overcome challenges, grow their Superpowers, and thrive.
Your child’s Superhero story begins at EmPOWERland
