Rhonda Stimpson,RSW,BSW,ECD2



Play Therapy


My name is Rhonda Stimpson and I am the sole proprietor of Bright Side Play Therapy. I am a Registered Social Worker and I have a Bachelor of Social Work, a Certificate in Foundations of Play Therapy from Rocky Mountain Play Therapy Institute, accredited training in Sandtray Play Therapy and a Diploma in Early Childhood Development. I am also an active member of the Canadian Association of Play Therapy.

Prior to my counseling practice I began my career as an Early Childhood Educator and then moved on to complete my Bachelor of Social Work. I have worked in non profits, government agencies and child care centers. I provided group parent education, and individualized support for families struggling with parent skills, group facilitation for parents of children struggling with anxiety and regulating their emotions and case management to families with intellectual disabilities. I discovered the world of Play Therapy and realized how important it is to reach children in this capacity. Children are unable to work through their difficulties and trauma using talk therapy because their primary language is play. They are often unable to tell you how they are feeling and as a result you will notice difficulties in behavior, relationships with family and friends, sleep patterns and regression. In the play room children develop a safe relationship with the therapist and as a result they are free to express those feelings and are able to learn and grow form the experience.
