- COME PLAY -

Play Therapy Webinars, Supervision and Resources
by Clair Mellenthin, LCSW, RPT-S

You are invited to come play!

Whether you are a play therapist, or a parent with a struggling child you are not alone! Post COVID we are seeing record number of kids and teens struggling with anxiety and depression, amongst a host of other challenges ranging from health, relationships and behaviors.

My name is Clair Mellenthin, LCSW, RPT-S. You are in the right place if you prioritize the well being of the children you love, over tradition and the well-intentioned but clearly not working parenting and therapy strategies of the past.

With more than twenty years of clinical experience, authoring six books about play therapy and speaking to therapists around the globe I am here to tell you there is hope!

On this website you can find clinical CEU programs for mental health experts. You can find reading resources to solve parent's toughest challenges, register for a live event, sign up for supervision hours, or book a personal therapy appointment.

You are doing an amazing job. Keep it up! Join me as we rediscover the joy of connection, healthy relationships and attachment through play!

Keep Playing!
