My Story

A Licensed Clinical Therapist Here to Support You

Before becoming a Clinical Therapist, Novie worked as a Producer/Casting Director of TV & Film in Los Angeles, CA. She also wrote and directed BLUE MIDNIGHT, a docu-drama that educates individuals on how to recognize the signs and symptoms of depression and suicide. Her creative aspirations keep her enmeshed in the entertainment industry and she enjoys combining the arts with treatment plans that assist clients in working toward mental wellness.

 ACTING OUT LOUD THERAPY incorporates evidenced based interventions to assist ADULTS and YOUTH in the therapeutic process. For children and adolescents, we may utilize play therapy, creative exercises, role play, improvisation, and other expressive arts in the therapeutic environment. We strive to help young people find alternatives to negative thinking and offer them the opportunity to learn coping skills in a creative environment which alleviates some of the turmoil they encounter. Whatever your age, you'll find our work together supportive and encouraging. Get in touch with me today for more information.

A Bit About Therapy

Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

We implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.


With You Every Step of the Way

Life is challenging. When things aren't right at school or at home, parents can only hope a child would turn to them. If you see your child hurting and you don't know what to do or how to help, Acting Out Loud can partner with you. Get in touch to book an appointment.
