My Approach to Helping
I am one of the co-owners of the The Artful Life Counseling Center and Studio. We see clients virtually and in our office, and have 21 other expressive therapists on my staff who see children, adolescents and adults. We are almost 100% virtual at this time. When you reach out, our intake coordinator will schedule an initial free consult with you to learn more about your unique goals and treatment needs. You are also welcome to look at our clinician bios on our website: https:www.artfullifecenter.orgartfulteam
Our philosophy at The Artful Life is one of collaboration, creativity and consistency. We understand that everyone is an individual, with their own unique experiences and story. As your therapist, we truly believe that you are the expert of your own life, not me. We will work with you to identify your goals and best approach to your treatment. We have an eclectic and holistic approach, with a diversity of tools and strategies to help you progress on your own personal journey--whatever that may be.
At times, there may be thoughts or feelings that are difficult to express with words. We can help you understand and express yourself through other creative means: using drawing, collage, paint, sculpture or poetry can be a powerful way to gain personal insight and self-awareness. In addition to art therapy, we sometimes incorporate mindfulness and relaxation skills as a way to decrease anxiety and strengthen self-soothing skills.
