ellie-goldrup Philosophy of Care

As a therapist I identify with a  person-centered approach. I support clients in identifying their own strengths, setting goals and learning skills to meet life's challenges. Beginning a personal growth journey takes courage, as it involves acknowledging and addressing personal challenges and vulnerabilities, and committing to the process of self-exploration and change. I work collaboratively with clients to create a safe space and tailor sessions, goals and coping skills to their individual needs. My approach often includes elements from a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities which can include CBT, DBT, IFS, family based approaches using FBT and EFF, and art therapy. 

With my training in art therapy, I am able to offer art interventions to aid individuals in the expression of experiences that evade words. For those interested in this treatment approach, art can be a gentle access point into processing self identity. You don’t need to have any skill in drawing, painting, sculpting or other art mediums to try out the modality. As a licensed art therapist, my role is to offer you a non-intrusive space to use art media for the purpose of self expression, and guide you through processing and incorporating your self-insight into your therapeutic journey. 

I believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change and I am committed to helping clients live their best lives in the face of whatever challenges come their way.
