My Approach to Helping
Although we cannot change our past, we can acknowledge its impact and change how we view it and ourselves. While working with clients, I encourage expression to gain self-awareness and to reshape narratives. Expression is essential in everyday life, especially when working through difficult times, such as grief and trauma. I practice therapy with a person-centered, trauma-informed, strength based approach to meet clients where they are and to help them make changes to start the healing process. As an Art Therapist, I have the ability to bring artmaking into the therapy session and to help facilitate the healing process.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Board-Certified Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC), a Certified Grief Informed Professional (CGP), and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP-II) I use a combination of person-centered and trauma-informed care, and I am familiar with CBT, DBT, MI, and Crisis Intervention.
I have many years of experience helping people with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, body image, self-esteem, and addiction. I offer in person sessions, as well as telehealth sessions.
