Therapeutic Approach:

Camille provides individual, couple and family therapy to adolescents and adults for an array of different relational and emotional concerns.  The focus of therapy is on relationships, emotions and thoughts.  As a therapist, she will guide and walk along side you on your personal journey.  It is important to understand that a therapist does not fix you, however they are a skilled and trained professional that will collaborate and partner with you to move through areas in your life that are not serving you well.

Camille uses an integrative approach in her practice.  She often draws from depth psychology and trauma sensitive approaches with clients and families.  Her approach  is collaborative and strength based, meaning she will assist in identifying your strengths and work to problem solve for solutions that will work for you as an individual or family unit.  She will listen, inquire and encourage you to deepen your understanding of feelings and behaviors that arise in your life.  Together you will explore how you have become who you are today, how your past experiences have shaped you, and how to move forward with your new found understandings.  She believes that people grow through community and relationship; therefore we may discuss the relationships in your life as well as our therapeutic relationship during sessions.
