I believe growth and change are natural to all of us. But when depression, anxiety, stress and the lingering effects of difficult childhood experiences direct all our energy to protecting from more emotional pain, the natural process of development is blocked. It is my role to support you in freeing yourself from blocks to sustained growth and movement towards your full potential. I also believe that growth requires a healthy imagination to embrace new concepts of who you are and what your life can be.
As a Creative Arts Therapist, the treatment room may become a space to explore your "inner landscape." Together we can safely encounter negative beliefs and self-judgements from the past, challenge unrealistic expectations about today and cultivate self-compassion to risk a more vibrant future.
Whether you are 5 or 65, we may harness the power of imagination, play and humor to foster deep curiosity about situations that otherwise stifle your ability to master. We will work to restore your sense of possibility and openness as you experience more freedom of choice in relating to yourself, others and life's challenges with authenticity and courage.
