Behind the Scenes

Laura from theplaytherapist.com mental health blogs and articles for therapists

Laura Martorano-Boring, MA, LPC/MHSP, RPT-S

Hello There!

My name is Laura and I am a licensed professional counselor, Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, and mother to a spunky toddler. I am the owner of a private practice group, Sunny Path Counseling, which specializes in working with children and families experiencing behavioral and emotional difficulties. 

In my experiences working with children, I have found that a creative, hands-on therapy approach is more effective than traditional “talk therapy”. Sometimes it can be hard to think of new activities to use in therapy to help promote and maintain therapeutic growth. That’s why I created The Play Therapist Network. TPT is not a “person”, rather it is a movement of sharing information from one therapist to another with the goal of helping the most children we can. 

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.
