Announcement icon I am open to connecting via Zoom for video art therapy and counseling sessions
Emotional pain and stress are parts of life, but finding meaningful ways through these experiences benefits from a trusting and guided partnership. Art therapy provides a non-judgmental bridge to help people of all ages explore and clarify what is contributing to emotional disturbances, express and process complex internal experiences, and practice new behaviors that support an integrated and fulfilling life.
As an art therapist and practicing artist, I integrate coaching in the artistic process with knowledge of evidence-based therapy models to help customize personal client growth. I use an empathetic approach to build lasting partnerships with my clients so trying new materials and exploring painful subjects feels safe, rewarding, and productive.
Through incorporating both cognitive therapy and visual art clients build connections across brain hemispheres. This active exchange helps to integrate diverse thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and offers ways to make internal perceptions and intuitions tangible, while containing difficult or overwhelming emotions and finding insightful solutions.
