The Houston Center for Play Therapy
The Houston Center for Play Therapy was founded in 2015 to serve the needs of mental health professionals who want to pursue training and supervision in play therapy. The Center has been approved as a continuing education provider by the Association for Play Therapy, as well as the licensing boards for Texas social workers, professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists.
Its central location in the museum district makes it convenient and accessible to professionals and students from all over the city.
