My Approach to Helping

My mission as a therapist is to instill hope and nurture healing by improving relationships. Guiding, exploring, and discovering a individuals path towards whole living through the process of supportive psychotherapy and art therapy.

My approach is holistic focused, exploring brain based behavior and focusing on physical, emotional, spiritual wellness. I encourage my clients to look beyond their symptoms and develop a clear picture of their goals while meeting them where they are at. I am a creative counselor, using a combination of traditional talk therapy and art psychotherapy.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Does your child or teen struggle to express themselves? Do you feel overwhelmed and frustrated by their non-verbal cues?
When I work with children or adolescents, they may come in confused or overwhelmed by their own emotions. Using art therapy, we start by building a relationship, using visual images we explore ways to express feelings and memories that are hard to capture in words, and then we use art or play to create a new story. By writing or painting a new story we find new coping tools along the way, that build off of the child's strengths and provide confidence and a healthy means of communication.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

What is Art Therapy? How can it help me?

Art therapy is an expressive therapy that combines art-making with traditional psychotherapy theories and techniques. The art therapist provides a receptive and not threatening, creative environment to express feelings. Through painting, drawing, collage, etc. the art therapist helps the client engage in the creative arts. Art therapists are trained to recognized non-verbal symbols within the creative process that may be difficult to verbalize. By helping the client to discover the underlying thoughts, feelings, meaning, and inner needs, the client can gain valuable insight, fulfillment, and a better understanding of themselves and their relationships.
