Rachel provides individualized treatment to children, teens, adults and families.
Are you looking for help for yourself, your child, a friend or loved one? Have you been in treatment before, but failed to achieve or sustain the results you were hoping for? Is your child struggling to engage with their current therapist? Have the benefits of counseling - historically or at present - been limited for you or your child?
Taking a new, creative approach may be what's needed now. Achieve the growth you desire, with sustainable results. Consultation is available to help you decide if this approach to treatment might be the right fit.
Art therapy is more than just a tool or intervention. It is a mental health profession in its own right, which draws upon traditional "talk" therapy approaches to creatively adapt treatment to the individual.
Art therapy provides the means for communicating thoughts, feelings and ideas in healthier, more effective ways.
Often, our emotional experiences can be too complex to fully capture with words. You do not have to be an artist to benefit from art therapy; it is an individualized treatment approach that involves the exploration of many forms of creative expression within a therapeutic partnership.
