Adina has experience working in community and school social work with individuals, families, teens and children, including those living with a variety of disabilities and mental health and life challenges. In her quest to find the most effective tools for helping people grow and change, she has found success (and fun!) in utilizing creative modalities including art (especially painting and drawing), physical movement (walking, tapping and EMDR) along with sand tray and play therapy tools. She also has experience serving people in varying stages of their faith journey and is able to bring Judeo-Christian principles to the counseling process.
Adina finds it her privilege to empathically walk alongside people as they seek to find purpose, rest, and joy in the hard parts of life, and she believes that therapy is most effective when a therapist and client work together to leverage existing strengths with new tools and resources.
