Teaching the World to Play

Play Therapy Training and Supervision

“I believe we are all born with the tools we need to live fulfilled, passionate, and complete lives.” ~Dr. Renee Turner

Welcome! I’m Dr. Renee Turner, Ph.D., LPC-S, RPT-S.
I train students and professionals in play therapy, trauma, and mind-body oriented psychotherapy. My passion for play therapy and mind-body therapies drives my commitment to teaching others how to use the body’s natural vehicle of breath to access the deepest, most powerful spaces within the spirit to heal, connect, and transcend. This work ultimately led me to combine my two passions into a new model of play therapy called SomaPlay Therapy. I’ve seen amazing results from this work and look forward to sharing and teaching this method with other professionals.

Claudia O., LPC, RPT

My time with Dr. Renee Turner an LPC-Intern was such an amazing journey! I use the word journey rather than experience because I genuinely feel that Dr. Turner walked with me through a journey of finding my voice as a professional. Dr. Turner always provided feedback that helped me grow both personally and professionally. I loved every minute of supervision and will fully endorse Dr. Turner as an extremely ethical, educated, and loving professional.
