All of our therapists strive first and foremost to be a safe space for clients to explore their concerns - to become a co-traveler with a client - to witness, honor, and respectfully hold the session as a safe and protected space.
We want kids to have a sense of awe and security at the same time. A quick sense of being in a place built for kids, which allows them to trust the people, and open to the experience - "These people speak my language." Inside this protected space kids can utilize the power of play as an arena to explore hurt and experience healing.
We would like adults to witness the dedication to the work of healing, and feel comforted by the agency's commitment to their craft of helping people grow. We embrace families, and want families to feel like they have come back to their place of fun and safety. Not a place of sitting in problems, but trying on new experiences and understandings. We want adults to know kids are not miniture adults, but adults are just big kids!
At Playmore & Prosper we believe growth and healing become real when mind, body, and soul have a unifying experience. For kids this frequently happens spontaneously through play. Adults will more frequently encounter this experience through directed exercises. We believe people grow and heal not from being told what to do, but in discovering from within themselves what they need to do. Activity often facilitates this discovery.
Our therapists have various specialties and activity based mediums which they work through - we share the value and working concepts of our specialties and mediums with each other to benefit all of our efforts to promote growth and healing. Our therapy interns work alongside a therapist as a working apprentice to support their work and learn the craft of helping people grow and heal.
We have a teaching & advancing the field commitment through accepting interns, observing ourselves through video & one way mirrors, preparing and hosting professional presentations with current research, and utilizing research to inform best practices.

As our slogan, "Explore your more," suggests, we believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from individual and family counseling. We see it as your time for self-care, exploration, and coaching. When else in your life do you get 50 minutes of time spent solely focused on you and your concerns, goals, and values? If you notice yourself or your child feeling stuck in the same rut and you want to break out, counseling can benefit you! In addition to helping people explore their more in life, each of our therapists have their own specialties that they enjoy to work with. Here are some of the specialties represented at Playmore & Prosper:
Children and adolescents affected by incarceration
