My Approach to Helping
We all face challenges throughout our lives and have the ability to grow and develop a life filled with joy and meaning. As both an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Art Therapist, I work with my clients to create the change they wish to see in their lives. If you are looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or if you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
I have a trauma informed practice which often integrates art into therapy sessions because it gives voice to experience through visual and symbolic expression while engaging the mind, body, and spirit. Through this kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual and symbolic experience, clients often experience improved self-esteem and self-awareness; access their resiliency and insight; and reduce conflict and distress. Art therapy is a unique therapeutic tool that can offer individuals immediate access to feelings and the means to express them in a safe manner. No art experience or skill necessary.
