Announcement icon Telehealth available during this difficult time. Let's support one another. Physical distancing does not mean Social distancing.
Learning new coping skills and effective methods to handle life's difficulties is the basis of how I work with clients combining Acceptance & Commitment Therapy with Expressive Arts. My focus is to activate the deep wisdom and resourcefulness that you already possess inside of you. When faced with challenging relationship issues, family conflict or personal hurdles, you will begin to move forward with greater psychological flexibility and less discomfort. You will discover your values & goals, identify how to halt unhelpful thoughts, and gain greater confidence in your ability to be the person you want to be.
How will your life be different after seeing me? 1.) Ability to manage your anxiety or any other difficult emotion. 2.) Clarity during decision making. 3.) Staying aligned with your core values even during difficult circumstances. 3.) Capacity to create meaningful personal goals and take committed action toward those goals. 4.) Heal from the inside out.
By taking a moment to connect with me today, you are also taking a loving, compassionate step toward yourself. The journey of a thousand miles starts with only one step. If you are a parent and want your child to have a session, my approach with kids is to use activities & play therapy to connect with them through imagination & then teach effective skills.

ACT for parents raising children with autism

As part of my work in this world, I apply Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Training to families raising a child (or children) diagnosed with autism or other pervasive developmental disorders. As a mother myself, with two sons diagnosed with autism, I possess direct lived experience of navigating through chaos and difficult behaviours. I had to first learn how to manage my own beliefs, anxieties, depressions and grief as a parent faced with ubiquitous challenges. Contact me if you are interested in joining a group.
