Meet Camille, LMFT

~Growing and Finding Peace~

“As a therapist, my approach is integrative, collaborative and strength based. I will assist you in identifying your strengths, and work with you on problem solving to find solutions that will best serve you as an individual or family unit. I will listen, inquire and encourage you to deepen your understanding of feelings and behaviors that arise in your life. Together, we will work to explore how you have become who you are today, how your past experiences have shaped you, and how to move forward with your newfound understandings.”

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 your 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 facilitate movement through areas in your life that are not serving you well.

Camille uses an integrative approach in her practice, often drawing from depth psychology and trauma sensitive approaches with clients and families.  She believes that people grow through community and relationship; therefore, during sessions we may discuss the relationships in your life as well as our therapeutic relationship.

Personal

In her free time Camille enjoys traveling, culture, learning, coffee, nature (particularly the ocean and mountains), walking, journaling, self care activities, friendship, family time, cooking and is an avid essential oil user and educator.  She enjoys taking life in moment by moment and spends time celebrating the small things.
