About

Prioritizing emotional wellness optimizes quality of life. My passion for helping people heal their inner lives grew out of exploring and understanding the images I created. I bring this guiding principle to every client centered therapeutic encounter. Creative expression and verbal psychotherapy together in an inclusive, gentle and supportive environment are a potent treatment for individuals of all ages seeking emotional stability. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed, down, stressed, or anxious. The activity of artmaking provides relaxation, it holds and clarifies the source of tension, it gently reveals the inner workings of the psyche.
Art therapy improves cognitive functions, fosters self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivates emotional resilience, promotes insight, enhances social skills, reduces and resolves conflicts and distress. Using a visual language of color, line, symbols and metaphors in a free and playful environment gives voice to our innate desire for wholeness and stability.
Having no prior art experience is not a barrier. I guide my clients towards successful use of art materials. My approach is holistic, informed by mindfulness, humanistic theory and the creative process itself within the psychotherapeutic relationship.
