Engage. Connect. Understand.
The prompt of one of these cards produced more therapeutic content in one session than in the previous few sessions. These cards are an awesome tool for therapists!

Counselors and Therapists (all over the world!),
(not a Counselor or Therapist? Check this page instead!)
What if there were a tool you could use with all of your clients?
What if it could be a serious perspective exploration and intervention tool one day, and an approachable, fun game the next?
What if that tool:
- Was developed by a Licensed Professional Counselor
- Had over 300 meaningful prompts?
- Had over two dozen activities, interventions, and games?
- Could be used with ages 8 to 108?
- Could be used with individuals, couples, families, and groups?
- Was incredibly portable and affordable?
No need to play the “What If” game.
That tool exists and it’s called Describe!
And it’s now available in most countries!
One of the 104 Describe cards from Deck One
Describe is a deck of cards that provides all of these things. Each card has an adjective, as well as three questions related to that adjective. The instructions include over two dozen activities and games that prompt individuals, couples, families, and groups to explore and discuss how they describe people, places, and things in their lives.
“These are awesome. You've got to get these!”
The following video demonstrates just five of the activities that come with Describe:
Describe was created by Rob Reinhardt, a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice. He developed Describe over the course of eight years because he wanted a fun, interesting way to explore the important perspectives of his clients of all ages. Using the many activities possible with Describe cards, he has been able to quickly understand where people are coming from, what’s important to them, and what things they might like to address or change in their lives. Describe has been an incredibly useful tool in working with individuals, couples, families, and groups!
When I think about Describe and…how powerful it is with clients, it’s one of those absolute necessities in my opinion.

After years of refining, narrowing down just the right adjectives and questions, Rob was ready to offer this wonderful tool to everyone! With the help of some wonderful backers, the initial printing of Describe was successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign. While Describe was originally conceived of as a counseling tool, it has since been used by Teachers, Coaches, Team Leaders, Authors, as well as individuals and families.
Rob continues to independently publish Describe, and it is available for purchase here as well as Amazon (Those in the UK/EU, and Canada and some other parts of the world, can order through Amazon.com and receive very reasonable shipping!).
Deck Two has now officially been funded through Kickstarter, and will include more cards and more activities. Pre-Order is currently the only way to get Deck Two, and the most cost efficient way to get both decks if you’re outside the U.S.
Deck Two is estimated to be available/shipped in December 2018.
USA – Deck One is available right now on Amazon.
Other Countries – Many countries can order Deck One through Amazon. Some, especially the UK/EU, Canada, and New Zealand, are likely to get a slightly better deal on shipping/customs if you order through the pre-order and don’t mind waiting on Deck One.
All Countries – Deck Two is only available through pre-order.
