Temple Carson Counselor

Hello! I’m Temple

LPC, LMFT, RPT

I believe that the greatest strength and healing agent we have is connection: connection with God, with our significant other, with our children, our extended family, and our friends. One of the best ways I have found to connect with people is through language, and the language of children is PLAY! Children learn to play before they learn to speak. Play is crucial in the development of children. In my office, children and adults will experience a safe, homey, and fun environment where we can work on the tough issues. In my play therapy room, you will find toys, sand trays, and art supplies to accommodate children 3-18.

I also enjoy working with adults through creative and experiential therapy. In me, you will find an open and caring relationship and someone who will partner with parents to bring children a safe place, in and out of the office as we work together to tackle life’s difficulties and bring out their best possibilities. What I do is no secret, I seek to teach parents how to work with children in their home in order to create and maintain their best relationship. Let’s schedule a play therapy date today.

Enter into children's play and you will find the place where their minds, heartgs, and souls meet.

~ Virginia Axline

There’s a part of all of us that longs to know that even what’s weakest about us is still redeemable and can ultimately count for something good.

~ Fred Rogers

I don’t think anyone can grow unless he’s loved exactly as he is now, appreciated for what he is rather than what he will be.

~ Fred Rogers

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”

~ Fred Rogers
