It is interesting how life can take us in different directions. Some that may be exciting and new, then there are times when we come across a challenge that may be difficult to handle on our own; we are unable to deal with it. Counseling can assist in the process of managing one's feelings, challenges and struggles. You do not need to manage this on your own, talking with someone can help with giving you direction, help you understand why you are feeling this way and how to make things better for yourself and /or others around you

As a Master's level Art Therapist, my practice incorporates the creative process with a Humanistic approach to help you develop healthy coping skills to manage emotions, moods, and behaviors. The union of art and psychology helps increase feelings of self-esteem and self-worth as you discover your strengths and life potential. When words are not enough, we use the creative process as a tool to facilitate exploration of beliefs, identifying the root cause of challenges that disrupt balance in daily functioning. In sessions, we will work in areas of mindfulness, identifying and establishing personal boundaries, and managing emotions.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.

Dual Diagnosis Therapists
Dual diagnosis (also called co-occurring disorders, COD) occurs when clients suffer from a mental illness while also experiencing a substance abuse problem. Diagnosing a psychiatric disorder in someone with a substance abuse issue is challenging as the drug abuse itself can often produce psychiatric symptoms. These dual diagnosis therapists in Venice may provide dual diagnosis programs, dual diagnosis facilities or Venice dual diagnosis treatment - dual diagnosis rehab may be relevant. A therapist can help provide support or connect you to a Venice COD network or support group.
