I'm a Registered Art Therapist and facilitate art -making directives geared toward each individual's needs/goals.
Do you function fairly well in most ways, but have some nagging issues (i.e. you struggle to trust, have a history of unhealthy or unsatisfying intimate relationships, trouble concentrating) that may be the result of past trauma? Do you want ways to process and heal that don't have to involve talking about the specifics of what happened to you? Do you have a child who needs some extra support navigating life changes (i.e. parents separated/divorced, school changes, moving homes, loss of loved one)? I have tools to address a number of issues that get in the way of better functioning and a more satisfying life.

After several years of helping others I find CBT, DBT, solution-focused therapy, reality therapy, behavioral therapy, motivational therapy, art therapy , animal therapy, feministic therapy, and of course humor to be very effective in treating most issues.
With 8 years of experience working with all ages, I specialize in anxiety, depression, codependency, trauma, divorce, perfectionism, relationship issues, self-esteem, aging, women’s issues and life transitions. I particularly enjoy individuals who are open-minded, motivated, and willing to do the work while trusting the therapeutic process. It is so important to be willing to try new things by venturing out of your comfort zone during our time together. By not having to rely strictly on medication to mask your issues, therapy teaches you to cope with life’s struggles, and thus change your fearful view of the world.

Worried about your child? Seeking help is the first courageous step as a parent! Assisting youth in navigating issues and witnessing them find their voice and unique gifts is the most rewarding part of my career. Anxiety, aggression, sadness, negative self views, unhealthy relationships and living in a complex world are all experiences that can hinder your child from being their best self. I have worked with youth for over 18 years and remain amazed at their wonder and resiliency. I strive to create a safe and caring environment where your child can express themselves freely - allowing them to feel heard, valued, and understood.

I approach counseling differently depending on the client. I develop a plan according to a perspective that will best accomplish their goals. This is done with open and honest communication between myself and the client. I strive to maintain a safe, nonjudgmental place that clients can feel unconditionally accepted. I often ask clients to complete tasks between sessions to practice skills learned in therapy within daily life, where it matters most. Some struggles I've helped clients overcome include depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, exploring career/education paths, and traumatic incidents. Call our office to request a session with me today!

Becoming attached to our thoughts and feelings can be easy and, at times, overwhelming. Along with living in the past or future - often times not experiencing what's going on around us right now. Increasing our psychological flexibility can help us adapt to difficult situations and help us learn how to respond to our thoughts and feelings in a more effective way. Do you want to learn how to experience the present moment more through a holistic approach and making committed action towards change, increasing psychological flexibility?

I became a counselor to help hurting people and trauma survivors heal and restore their wholeness. I embrace them with compassion and acceptance, because I understand struggling and what it feels like to need someone to listen and believe you. Clients are welcome to bring in their spirituality, their fears, and their taboos. A safe, calm space can help clients process their worries and problems, as well as use helpful coping skills to transform lives. Every client's situation is unique and I use integrative approaches to help them heal as a whole person in mind-body-spirit.

Art Therapy

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
