"Do you feel like no one sees you? Do you feel lonely, disconnected? Are you isolating from others yet long for connection? Are you overwhelmed in your relationship, lack of relationship, or job? Are you tired of relationship cycling -- dating, partnering, or marrying people who are not good for you? Do you wonder if anyone cares about or understands you? Let's talk. Are you hurting from a legalistic church upbringing? Are you aware of how that comes into present relationships and robs you of joy, peace, and self-confidence? Do you long to (re)connect to God and wonder how that fits with personal growth? There is Hope. Let's connect."

Working with a psychotherapist allows us to safely reckon with our destructive patterns, and to begin to weave new patterns that better support us. We deepen our awareness of our inner worlds, and in the process, we transform our relationships with ourselves and with each other."

"Stressed? Overbooked? Overwhelmed? Feeling inadequate, insecure, unappreciated, or overlooked? How about crabby, exhausted, uninterested, emotionally unavailable, or lonely in a holiday crowd? The holiday season has a way of bringing the best and the worst of our lives into sharp focus. It is normal – or at least automatic – for the challenges to overshadow the blessings. That is why this time of year sees so much attention paid to coping strategies. But while “coping” with the irritant is a good start, it doesn’t go far enough toward making life joyous. If you are looking for more than a season you survive I can help you find it."

"As a professional artist and art therapist, I’ve learned through experience that art is a powerful healing tool. It soothes anxiety and helps us connect to our inner wisdom. When therapeutic art making is done with intention and in the presence of a qualified art therapist, the results can be quite dramatic. The work can give us insights into ourselves and our life situation. It can help us heal trauma and find creative solutions to our problems.

"Does it take you a long time to calm down after being upset? Have you been told that you are "overly sensitive" to emotions? Emotions are natural however they do not have to control us. Sometimes it feels as though our emotions are in control of our lives and moods are subject to change on a whim. I work with clients to better understand their emotional process and learn to tolerate uncomfortable emotions. Ultimately it is about working towards emotional control and having healthier behaviour.
