What is Art Therapy? This is the number one question asked of me. Briefly, as defined by the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), "Art therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by the art therapist, use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem. A goal in art therapy is to improve or restore a client's functioning and his/her sense of personal well-being." The creative process lends itself readily to meeting the individual where they are at in the present moment. My personal style mirrors this. I utilize both the non-verbal and verbal processes to facilitate understanding, awareness and growth. My particular areas of expertise are grief/loss, attachment issues (i.e.foster care/adoption), trauma, mood instability, and disordered personality.

One of the most difficult aspects of being a parent is seeing your child in pain and feeling like there is nothing that you can do to help. Have you become increasingly concerned about your child's behavior at home or school? Do you worry that your child is struggling with day to day functioning? Are their behaviors difficult to understand and manage? Does the smallest thing seem to trigger your child? Is your teen withdrawing and not engaging in activities that once brought them joy? Is your teen engaging in harmful behaviors?

Using a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and humor (lots of humor), I work with women who are struggling to determine who they are right now and to understand their own personal developmental process through in-person or tele-health counseling.
**I AM ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** As women, we are often in positions to care for others. We help, we volunteer, we go the extra mile even if that extra mile costs us an hour less sleep. On top of that, there is so much pressure to be the perfect woman who is perfect in every way, the perfect mother in every way. For some of us, "perfect" feels more like "impossible". As a counselor, I see the struggles that so many women have on a daily basis with the idea that they need to be perfect.

My therapeutic approach is grounded in the cognitive-behavioral tradition with an emphasis on mindfulness and acceptance.
The decision to enter into therapy, although often difficult, can be one of the most rewarding choices a person can make. I believe my job as a therapist is to assist clients in making changes that lead to rich, meaningful lives, rather than focusing on the simple elimination of unwanted symptoms. I strive towards a therapeutic relationship that is collaborative and client-centered, providing an atmosphere of safety, understanding, and trust. It is my belief that within this environment, people find the freedom to do the work that leads to personal fulfillment.

It’s the right time for therapy if you find yourself in a pattern of thinking, feeling, behaving, or relating to others in a way that isn’t working for you. When a previous way of coping has become hindering or unhelpful, yet remains difficult to change, therapy can create insight, inspire change, and, ultimately, provide relief. Talk therapy with a trusted professional can open up space to explore anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief in a safe and cathartic way. Addressing the pain that weighs us down can improve our motivation, productivity, attention, and our sense of security and presentness within our relationships.
