I provide a safe place for you to discuss your issues. I work with clients on life transitions, relationship issues, anger management, grief and loss, parenting, and childhood trauma. My treatment approach is a combination of cognitive-behavior, solution-focused, and family systems. My goal is to bring hope to your situation and help you construct positive changes in your life's journey.

I ask my clients the "miracle question" and that is "if there were a miracle in your life, what would be different?" From this we create goals. This sets the stage for building positive changes. Making small positive changes in one's life can lead to big changes over time.

I sometimes I work with the entire family to improve family functioning. With children I may use Expressive Art Therapies, including Jungian Sand Play, to help them express their thoughts and feelings.

Dorcas Hutton is an extraordinary counselor and psychotherapist. She deals with a variety of mental health problems including anxiety, depression, and trauma. While she works with adults, she enjoys her work with children and specializes in the treatment of the whole family system. I highly recommend Dorcas Hutton as a therapist for you, your child, or your family.
