Therapeutic Approach

Camille currently provides therapy to adults in all phases of life for an array of different relational and emotional difficulties. She focuses therapy on the holistic connection between emotions, body sensations, and thoughts. As your therapist, she will guide and walk alongside you on your personal journey. It is her belief that a therapist does not fix you (instead believing that you hold the wisdom for growth); however, she is a compassionate and skilled professional that will collaborate and partner with you to facilitate movement thought areas in your life that are not serving you well. 

Camille uses an integrative approach in her practice, mostly drawing depth psychology, somatic psychotherapy and trauma-sensitive approaches with clients. She believes that people grow through relationships and therefore seeks to help people achieve a deeper connection with themselves, others and the world.  She will often use the exploration of dreams, memories, connection to body cues and spirituality to explore the unconscious more deeply.  This can be a beautiful way to get to know one’s self and build awareness; often getting to the root instead of just the symptom.  It is her main goal for you to feel safe to be yourself and express what’s surfacing for you.

Personal

In her free time Camille enjoys traveling, exploring, learning, morning coffee time, nature and taking care of plants, quiet time, friendship, and baking. She is currently studying to be an Herbalist and is an avid essential oil lover.  She enjoys taking life in moment by moment and spends time celebrating the small things.
