My Approach to Helping
My general approach to psychotherapy is to slow down and pay attention to behavioral patterns and decide if attention and change need to be either given or made. This may sound simple, however, the process can be very challenging to implement without having a guide. I believe that our unconscious minds have given us both gifts and challenges to deal with. Deep-rooted patterns are formed from these emotional experiences, almost like muscle memory, and thus most of us go about our lives not understanding what changes need to be made and how to go about implementing them.
If you choose to start a therapeutic relationship with me, I am confident that there will be a way to make a change in your life. Using either talk psychotherapy, art psychotherapy, or a combination of both we will together go on a journey of discovery, guiding you closer to the emotional space you want to live in. I do not believe that therapy has to be a serious or arduous process. I think humor and creativity are two important aspects of my work, and can help a client bring about change in a meaningful manner.
