Kella River, LCSW, LADC

Therapy provides an opportunity to be empathetically heard, to gain insight into thoughts and behaviors, to identify and practice healthy coping skills, and to cultivate growth and resilience in a safe and welcoming atmosphere. I offer a trauma-informed approach for a variety of client needs utilizing traditional psychotherapy as well as expressive art therapies including play therapy, sand tray therapy, guided imagery therapy and mindfulness. In therapy, I use a client centered, collaborative approach to help clients identify problems that are barriers to life satisfaction, explore solutions, and work toward self-actualization.
