About Seattle Play Therapy, PLLC

At Seattle Play Therapy, PLLC we are dedicated to providing quality child therapy services to the Seattle community. As trained and credentialed (or in process) Play Therapists we believe in the power of play to help children make sense of their world, build positive sense of self and change problematic behaviors in a developmentally appropriate way: through play!

Seattle Play Therapy was founded by Rosie Newman, MA, LMHC, RPT-S in 2013. Since then, the need for quality play therapy services became evident. In 2016, Rosie decided to hire another play therapist, Lindsay Simon Fox, MS, LMFTA to join Seattle Play Therapy and begin working towards building a community of quality trained play therapists in Seattle.  If you are a therapist interested in joining the SPT team, click here to learn about employment.
