You, your child, and your family all have the potential to live a joyful, fulfilled and empowered life. All individuals and families have innate strengths that with the right support can allow for healthy, connected, meaningful lives.
Art, play and sand tray therapies are used in addition to traditional counseling to meet each client's unique needs. As a client, you do not need to be "good" at art or have any experience in art making. All we ask is to come with a willingness to engage in the creative process and explore in a supportive and caring environment.
We know life can be busy, so while we highly encourage all clients to come to the office for sessions, we do offer counseling services through a secure Telehealth system.
