Minecraft is a dynamic video game that is similar to the appeal of playing with Legos but for the modern era. Minecraft encourages all of the foundations of healthy therapeutic play including the processes of:

  • Creating

  • Inventing

  • Discovering

  • Exploring

Being immersed in the world of Minecraft exposes the player to therapeutic, clinical dynamics such as:


  • Emotional Regulation

  • Distress Tolerance

  • Collaborative Play

  • Healthy Competitive Play

  • Turn Taking

  • Compromise

  • Planning

  • Time Management


When used in a clinical therapy session (whether individually or with a group) the player has an experience that is different than playing with a friend or family member.


Please reach out to discuss the myriad ways Minecraft therapy has helped patients in my practice with:

  • Grief and loss

  • Traumatic Events

  • Behavioral Challenges

  • Identity and Self-esteem 

  • and of course, safe and dependable fun with a trusted professional in a contained environment
