It would be nice to say that we could go through life without heart ache or struggle, but unfortunately no one is immune to challenges. So what do we do when life becomes overwhelming? How do we handle intense emotions? How do we create meaningful relationships in the face of conflict? As a therapist, I have worked for 25 years helping people find ways to cope with life's difficulties, make and maintain positive relationships, learn to understand their emotional reactions, and find ways to clarify their goals so that they may create a life that feels worth living.
I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist, a board certified art therapist, and 20 years worth of experience using DBT with groups and individuals. DBT has been shown to be highly effective in working with everything from intense trauma to people who consider themselves highly emotional. I also have extensive experience working with neurodiversity.
As a creative arts therapist, I use talk, art, music, play, and sand tray. But you don't have to be an artist to benefit from art therapy. Art therapy is not about creating beautiful pictures but about exploring our inner world. Please call today for a free phone consultation.
