Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic I am seeing clients online.
While we live among tremendous beauty, sometimes we also experience trauma. Along with encountering adverse events, I believe trauma is often a result of surviving within the inequities of a capitalist/colonial society. Through somatic expressive arts therapy, my practice seeks to support a creative reconnection to our senses of safety, vitality, joy, and presence. Together we will imagine new possibilities while easing patterns which were once adaptive during trauma experiences, and may no longer be supportive in the here-and-now. I use a flexible approach to therapy which is relational, experiential, resource-based and embodied.
Through somatic expressive arts therapy, I invite you to explore mindfulness, gentle body awareness, imagination, and attunement to the art making process through a variety of modalities (such as visual art, movement, sound/music, voice, writing, and storytelling) in order to (re)gain awareness of our creative resiliency and capacity for deep connection.
As a therapist I value presence, relationship, cultural awareness, anti-oppression, and trauma-informed care. In our work together, I will hold space for empathy, listening, sensitivity, choice, and accountability. I believe fully in our embodied potential for healing through creative connection. I am happy to offer a free 20 minute information call.
