Behind the Scenes

Laura Martorano, MA, LPC/MHSP, RPT

Hello There!

My name is Laura and I am a licensed professional counselor and Registered Play Therapist. I am the owner of a private practice group, Sunny Path Counseling, which specializes in working with children who have been abused, traumatized, or experiencing attachment issues. In my experiences working with children, I have found that oftentimes caregivers are an important part in therapy and seek information about children’s mental health issues and best practices. 

It is my hope that The Play Therapist can serve as a hub of information for therapists seeking new ideas and parents wishing to know more about the therapy process.
