My Approach to Helping
Perhaps you're feeling stuck, like the next step of your life's path is beyond your reach, unclear or blocked--or maybe you don't even know if you're on the right one! You may be struggling to find your place and unique rhythm in this world. Are you looking for a safe and supportive place for your voice to be heard and be empowered to become who you truly are and want to be? Maybe you're having or have had difficult life experiences that are hard to talk about or express.
Experiencing your own creativity can be a powerful experience on your path to growth, healing and understanding. In addition to more traditional "talk" therapy, use of expressive arts can help give shape and form to experiences and emotions that are vague, troubling or not expressible in other ways. The therapeutic relationship and creative process can also help you come to understand why you may be struggling in your relationships with family and friends, help you when you are feeling stressed, anxious, burnt-out and life seems to be overwhelming, as well as help you come to a fuller awareness of yourself and your world.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy helps in many ways. As I mentioned above, therapy (the therapeutic realtionship) creates a safe and accepting space where you can experience, explore and express yourself with out fear of judgement or shame. In this kind of relationship you are empowered and encouraged to tap into your own intuitve knowing and understanding, helping you become more self-aware and mindful. This kind of empowerment can help you move forward with your life in ways that may surprise you!
