Allison Batty Capps MA, MFT

Child & Family Therapist

I have been working with children for over 14 years as a teacher and as a therapist. I believe in a holistic, relational approach to healing that integrates the mind, body, and spirit. As a therapist, I believe that our sense of self develops as we relate to our environment and in our relationships with others. I have experience treating children and their families in an inpatient and outpatient setting; my specialization includes treatment of children with behavioral/emotional struggles, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, children who have experienced trauma, and children who have experiences with auditory and visual hallucinations.

I firmly believe in working collaboratively with children and their families based on their cultural/spiritual values and beliefs to create a holistic, relational approach to therapy that integrates mindfulness, movement and expressive arts techniques to foster recognition and expression of their ideal physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health.
