Meet Our Play Therapists
Here at the Bridge Center, it is very important to us that you work with someone who is able to meet your needs and expectations. Our therapists all have a variety of experience and expertise, in addition to extensive training with children, parents, and families. We invite you to get to know all our therapists and make a suggestion about whom you may feel is the best fit to work with you.
Genevieve Johnson, MA, LPC
Owner, Lead Therapist
I am Genny, a play therapist in Longmont specializing in enhancing the parent-child connection, breaking through frustrating behaviors and optimizing your child's ability to learn and socialize. I am committed to emotional expression and feel inspired when I hear parents, teachers, and kids naming feelings and working through difficult moments with one another. I also have a passion for bringing emotional awareness and regulation into the school setting, as I think it is a major obstacle children face when trying to learn. I see clients privately for play therapy and work with parents, children, and teachers to help everyone minimize distress and start living the lives they want.

Personal growth and development is her passion, not only with families, but also in coaching, instructing, and mentoring therapists, teachers, alike.
Cassie Grossman, MA
Cassie is a nurturer and strives to create a therapeutic space in which children and adolescents can feel safe and seen. Cassie received her first MA in Art Education from Adelphi University, and then an MA in Clinical Mental Health and Art Therapy from Naropa University. She is a student of life, eager to learn about the world and how she can contribute to it. Cassie most enjoys getting to know each child’s inner wisdom, hers included. She believes the capacity to heal is within us already, and it is the therapeutic relationship that reminds us of our own strength.
