Layla has a passion for using eco therapy techniques in her practice, inviting others to connect with nature which in turn allows them to experience the therapeutic and healing benefits of spending time outdoors. Layla enjoys incorporating other creative therapy techniques into treatment as well. These techniques utilize the creative process to help clients explore self-expression and, in doing so, find new ways to gain personal insight and develop new coping skills. Layla incorporates many of these techniques into her own daily living. She enjoys gardening, fishing, relaxing in the sun, playing sports, watching football, going on adventures, baking, laughing and spending time with her loved ones.
