My Approach to Helping

Safety and trust are vital to forming healthy connections with others. As a healing practitioner, I believe in building a safe space for people to explore what is causing them concern in order to welcome change and growth. Every person's healing path is different and what works for one person may not work for another. I aim to meet people where they currently are and help them get to where they would like to go. The healing process can be filled with a mix of thoughts and emotions and it is a privilege to witness people's 'ah-ha' moments and discover how strong and resilient they are. It takes a great amount of courage to reach out for help and I want you to know: I see you.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I am not immune to mental, emotional, or physical challenges because I am a therapist. However, through experience, study, and going through my own healing process, I am better equipped to handle the things that have the potential to overwhelm me. One of the reasons I love art therapy is that it allows me the opportunity to express myself without the use of words. Emotions cannot always be simplified or expressed through words. Emotions are big and powerful and can be beyond words. And if you cannot verbally express how you feel, then how can anyone truly help you. Creating a visual representation of my feelings was empowering because I could show someone what I was feeling. And because art is so emotive, the viewer was able to connect with me in a new way. So if you can't fully tell me how you're feeling, perhaps you can show me.
