Expressive Arts Psychotherapy
Expressive Arts psychotherapy is a powerful way to transform our inner and outer worlds.
In practice, each creative modality (music, poetry, visual art, movement, dramatic art, etc.) is used in combination. In this way, people are helped to explore and clarify the human experience. As creativity is innately healing, new perspectives result from this deep work.

Holistic psychotherapy recognizes humans as complex and whole beings that are both self-healing and capable of mental, physical, and social well-being.
Together with the positive psychology movement, holistic psychotherapy seeks to restore a state of wholeness and balance. Holistic psychotherapy is designed to enhance the human experiences of love, play, and work, making them vital and attainable.
This contrasts significantly with traditional allopathic medicine, which consistently views people as potentially ‘broken’ and aims to ‘fix’ them. Exploring and learning about our feelings, psyches, relational patterns, and behaviors is a natural and empowering part of the human experience, which has errantly been stigmatized.
Holistic psychotherapy espouses the idea that it is both healthy and normal to explore and transform our psychological landscape.
Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) is an evidence-based counseling technique that strengthens the attachment of a parent/caregiver and their young child. CPP helps children who have experienced a stressful life event, or who have had disruptions in their normal development, heal through work with their primary attachment figure (mother/father/caregiver). Children in infancy up to the age of 5 are treated in a pair with their parent/caregiver, utilizing elements of play therapy, parenting work, and psycho-education.
