My Approach to Helping
I use a range of healing techniques centered around each person - as we are all individuals, and what will work for some may not work for others. I specialize in opening up defenses towards leading a more open, positive and inspired life, outside of "traditional talk therapy". Engaging a new found sense of self care and love by the means of any expressive medium necessary.
The goal is to provide you with the healing tools and skills needed to apply and live an autonomous healthy life for you. To feel like you can breathe again. Let me help and support you. We will work through challenges utilizing projected metaphor and discussion in the image/art.
In life, so much is weighted on verbal expression. However, many things we experience and feel can not be easily expressed in this way. Creative arts opens up a new avenue of expression, experience, and thoughts that are conducive to healing and feeling better.
I have been in practice in child and adolescent therapy for over 10 years. I am a young spirited and relatable therapist, that clients are quick to warm up to and express themselves with. I have worked in schools, hospitals, private care, artistic workshops and outpatient centers. I've provided therapy in the United States, The United Kingdom, Burma, Nicaragua, and South Africa.
