Creative Arts Therapy is an active, experiential approach to facilitating change. If you are struggling, you don’t have to go through it alone. I am committed to supporting you on the path to achieving your goals and tapping into your creativity. My practice is about building connections through creative expression, mindfulness, embodied play, and counseling techniques. Through a holistic and creative approach to recovery, I work with clients to help you uncover the spark that makes you feel inspired, flexible, and grounded in your life and work.

Our sessions might include disciplines such as Drama Therapy, Art Therapy, and Dance Therapy that have been applied in psychotherapy and counseling for more than 70 years. I also have a background in practices of mindfulness, DBT, and trauma-informed healing work.

You do not need to be an actor or a “creative type” to benefit. Sessions will be tailored to meet your needs and comfort levels. Phone consultations are always complimentary. Contact me to see if we might be a good fit!
