My Approach to Helping
I am a holistic counselor and art therapist with over 25 years experience working with children, teens, adults, couples, and families. I am also a certified grief counselor. My work is based on the transformational model of therapy. I believe we have the innate ability to transform and travel though life's ups and downs gracefully, when we have the proper tools. I love using the creative process as a means to explore the unconscious by allowing it to become conscious through symbols. It is through awareness that true healing takes place.

My rate is $120 per hour. I am on most insurance plans, please visit my website for a list. Sliding scale rates are an option for those in financial need.


My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Counseling can help you find a greater awareness and understanding to assist you in contending with the current challenges in your life. Finding the path of your heart asks you to go within to find greater awareness and light.

As an experienced therapist, I can offer skills and tools to help you express yourself in healthy ways to find and enjoy a greater sense of joy and peace.

One of the main factors contributing to success in therapy is the relationship you have with your counselor. Through a connection built on safety and trust, you can allow change to happen during the therapeutic process. This change can be applied to life's challenges.
