I'm ally rasp
I help ‘tweens and teens go from isolated and anxious to connected and confident with social skill-building.
I do my best work with middle and high school students who are ready to to explore their creativity to cope with anxiety and anger and create healthy new patterns.
As an Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, I love helping clients use the power of creativity to overcome obstacles to healing from anxiety and depression. In my work as a middle school counselor, I’ve learned how to help clients use practical tools to manage school anxiety, procrastination and difficulty with focus and attention so that they can complete work and feel confident in their abilities.
I have a special interest in working with ‘tweens who exhibit acting-out behaviors that show up as anger, or the tension and frustration that comes from being a tightly-wound or anxious kid. I have solid systems that help these clients learn to recenter and learn to use helpful communication rather than behaviors to express how they feel.
Because of my work history in working with kids on the Autism Spectrum, I’ve developed a love for teaching social skills and helping ‘tweens and teens learn how to effectively approach and interact with peers so that they feel connected, confident and happy.
When I'm not at work...
I love hikes with my dog and spending time with friends.
I am pleased to offer Saturday appointment times for teens with hectic school week schedules!
