I am an Art Therapist experienced in working with individuals to process and manage trauma, stress, mood symptoms, and anxiety. I specialize in integrating verbal psychotherapy and art therapy with mindfulness practices, to enhance individuals' ability to self regulate while working through challenging experiences. I can assist you to strengthen internal resources, gain self awareness, and develop the skills and confidence to generate change. We will work together to develop personalized treatment goals and constructive ways of working.
Art Therapy offers opportunities for expression, containment, relaxation, reorganization, and reflection. Individuals often feel visual expression allows access to previously inaccessible material, which can then be processed verbally. Metaphors can be used to develop a flexible space in which clients gain insight and access unique strengths and vulnerabilities.
As an integrative therapist I draw from psychodynamic, relational, cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and interpersonal approaches. I have training and experience providing Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and integrating play, bibliotherapy, creative writing, and mindfulness skill building. When working with children and adolescents I encourage participation of parents/ caregivers.
