WELCOME to the 6 month Online Introduction to Synergetic Play Therapy Course!


I am so glad that you have chosen to sign up for this course and that we will have a chance to learn and grow together for the next six months. In order to help you get started, please read through this message (I know it is long), but it will orient you to all of the information that you need.

As a reminder, in this six-month online course, we will explore the basic components of Synergetic Play Therapy™ and truly have a one-of-a-kind experience. This course was designed for both beginners and advanced practitioners. The course runs six months and includes a mix of three, one-hour LIVE webinars with me, six 2.5 hour recorded video courses and mandatory monthly one-hour group consultations ( determined by what you signed up for) with an SPT Supervisor/Consultant to help you integrate what you are learning. If you interested and qualify for APT-Approved CE credits, you will have the opportunity to print out a certificate after watching each recording and taking a short quiz.

If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask. We are here for you and want to make this a great experience for you.  I am looking forward to being with you,
