Andie works from a relational framework and looks at the whole person, including both their mental and physical health and symptoms. She believes that much of the healing comes from developing a strong, trusting relationship with her clients. When doing longer-term work with a client, Andie takes a Psychodynamic approach and spends time looking at issues they may have been dealing with for a long time but have not yet addressed. For couples who have experienced grief and loss, she helps them integrate their grief into their lives by learning how move forward in their lives while maintaining a strong connection to the child who has passed.
