Announcement icon During the COVID-19 pandemic, I will be extend the Telehealth option to all my clients
Offering Telehealth. As an art therapist and counselor, my style of work is to focus on strengths, empowerment, coping skills, and problem solving. I am trained in a diversity of methodologies, and my primary focus is to individualize my approach for each client. I have a specialty in trauma informed practice, and I have worked with a wide range of populations, including at-risk adolescents, children, homelessness, families, adults, trauma survivors, and active duty military. I am currently training in EMDR. I have also worked in a diversity of cultures, including East, South, and West Africa, India, Eastern Europe, and Appalachia.
As a therapist, I see my role as a nonjudgemental ally and advocate. As an art therapist, I believe that artistic expression bypasses the limitations of language and opens a door to self discovery. I understand that not all people are comfortable with art, so I do not force it in my sessions, but I do always have art materials by my side.
Whether it is sand tray, being on the pottery wheel, or painting, I want to support clients in feeling free to express themselves in all different modalities. A therapist's role is to be a safe place non judgmental place for their client, and I offer a 20 minute phone consultation to help you know if I am a good fit for you or your family member.
