Lessons from the Playroom

Feb 15, 2022

In this Lessons from the Playroom episode, Lisa discusses the #1 thing that will get you off track as a therapist ... and it's trying to be someone you’re not!


Despite messages that might suggest differently, authenticity and "being yourself" is not easy and has so many implications for therapists. Join Lisa in a conversation to explore: 

  • How you know when you're trying to be someone you're not;
  • Why it's so important to be yourself in the playroom;
  • How to show up most like yourself and embody what feels true for you as a therapist; and
  • How to access a deeper level of attunement that is needed to support your clients.

Tune in and join Lisa on the journey to learn more about this most essential ingredient to your client’s healing journey - and this time it’s about discovering who you are as a therapist.
