Who We Are:
Our mission at Seattle Play Therapy is to provide quality therapeutic care for children and families. We strive to create a work culture that balances a supportive community while promoting individual professional growth. Most of our referrals are between the ages of 2-12, though we also receive referrals for adolescents.
We believe that being a therapist is a challenging job and therefore it’s imperative that your place of work values and appreciates you as a clinician and provides you with a supportive environment to develop skills that allow you to be the best therapist you can be.
We have a commitment to social justice which is an integral part of our value system at SPT. As such, we strive to engage in personal and professional reflection, training, and consultation to ensure that we are providing anti-racist and LGBTQ+ affirmative care.
