Announcement icon In person with masks is OK. I disinfect between sessions.
Begin your journey with me ... This could mean play therapy for the young, sand tray for the lost, and guided questioning for the searcher. For teens it means an opportunity to discover who they want to be and grasp positive strategies that will get them there. For couples, it means doing a relationship check-up and then learning how to strengthen the weak areas and better utilize strengths. In expressive arts groups it means both preventing problems as well as recovering from hurtful experiences with peer support.
I use a humanistic, experiential, relationship based approach. I work with children and adults facing depression, anxiety, trauma or life transitions. For children, this includes art and play therapy. For couples, two research based methods: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Couples Therapy.
My theatre background taught me the importance of a supportive environment where people are safe to explore and make mistakes in order to find meaning through creative expression. In this way, I facilitate deepening relationships and communication for couples and families.
