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 technique or intervention. It is a specialized mental health profession that is informed by and draws upon traditional counseling or "talk therapy" approaches, allowing for creative adaptation of treatment to individual needs and preferences.
Often, our emotional experiences can be too complex to fully capture with words. Art therapy provides the means for building skill and communicating thoughts, feelings and ideas in healthier, more effective ways.
You do not have to be an artist to benefit from art therapy; it is an individualized approach that involves the exploration of many forms of creative expression within a therapeutic partnership.
