Emotions cause sensations in our bodies. Sometimes, our emotions are strong enough to cause physical discomfort. Other times, we feel so strongly we become numb and disconnected. Becoming overwhelmed can leave us feeling lonely and misunderstood. We want to connect with others, but we also want to protect ourselves. In therapy with me, you will learn how to carve out time for yourself, you will be supported in exploring feelings and experiences, you will feel considered and understood, and you discover how to integrate and gain control over your emotions, as we work toward cultivating compassion, self-esteem, and resiliency.

My therapeutic approach is based on evidence that the body and mind are connected. Each client receives a customized treatment approach--combining creative expression with talk therapy. I use guided experientials to help clients practice and internalize the themes developing during the therapy process, which facilitates change outside the office.

Creative expression facilitates exploration of feelings, self-expression, and development of problem solving skills. When we allow ourselves to process through an expressive outlet we experience catharsis, understand ourselves, and we experience what it is like to be seen and appreciated. Don't let nervousness stop you--try something new!
