Pooja Bakri,MPS, LCAt, ATR-BC
I am a nationally registered, board certified and licensed creative arts therapist. I have a broad range of experience working with children, teenagers and adults in my private practice, as well as through outpatient and community-based settings. Establishing a welcoming and safe space for individuals to express themselves is my primary aim. My clinical practice is person centered, and combines traditional verbal psychotherapy approaches with art therapy and the creative process. This can include play therapy, sand tray work, and mindfulness exercises in addition to art making. By having an open dialogue together, a relationship can evolve that allows clients to discover new strengths and possibilities. My approach is grounded in supporting individuals of all ages develop their own unique voice to incite positive change in their lives.
