I believe therapy can be a way to find yourself. To find out more about who you are and why you feel the way you do. Through the therapeutic process I bring attentiveness and a non-judgmental and empathetic approach to sessions. I use the practice of self-awareness and mindfulness to guide you to a better understanding of yourself and others. By working with your anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger, or whatever else you are experiencing, together we can find meaning behind those experiences which will facilitate growth. Art and creativity are other tools I use to engage with the unconscious where you can learn about yourself.

Sometimes there are thoughts, memories and moods that are causing us distress. Often, when we try to express these to others, we are left feeling more confused about what we are feeling or misunderstood afterward. Sometimes words fail us and we cannot find the right way to express ourselves and then we find ourselves repeating the same cycles. I have found in my work that when words fail, art can help us bridge that language dead-end. I am trained as an Art Therapist. I believe that art is innately human and can provide a safe space to initiate growth and change in individuals.

My approach is to utilize various theoretical methods in art therapy, counseling, and mindfulness.
Many times we struggle with stress, overwhelming experiences, and disturbances in personal identity. We are confronted with situations in which our past experiences strongly affect our reactions, behaviors, and emotional state. Anxiety, depression, self-doubt, intrusive thoughts, and negative behavior patterns have the potential to challenge us and impede emotional growth. I believe that individuals have the ability to implement and follow through on necessary change. Through self-examination and the therapeutic process, we will begin to evolve and create a healthy life narrative.

Art Therapy
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in Fairfax is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Fairfax Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centers, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled Fairfax art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
