My Approach to Helping
It's an especially challenging time. You don't have to suffer alone. I am a licensed Creative Arts Therapist and an EMDR basic trained psychotherapist, specialized in treating anxiety, depression and stress. Beyond traditional talk therapy, I practice through a client-centered, trauma-informed, and psychodynamic approach, utilizing the creative arts and EMDR techniques as alternative avenues for self-expression and self-exploration. Research studies have supported the effectiveness of EMDR in treating trauma, phobia, stress, anxiety and depression. The process of music and art making can offer the experience of flow, foster creativity, self expression and a deeper understanding and connection to yourself. I also believe in empowering my clients by imparting psych-education and tools to cope with daily challenges.
