At The Center for Connection, Janet Nordine, MS, LMFT, RPT-S (Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor TM) is one of the only Registered Play Therapist Supervisors in private practice in Las Vegas. She supervises and consults with therapists who are seeing children at The Center for Connection to provide support for the therapist as they use play to support their clients.

Therapy rooms that are designed for play are carefully set up and very different from your typical therapist’s office. These specially designed therapy offices are set up in a way that children are able to share their stories through play and with the therapist as a witness.
