I use creative modalities such as art , narrative, music, play therapy, and mindfulness approaches to support physical and emotional well-being.
There are times in life when it feels like you cannot take another minute of toxic stress or anxiety….whether it is about how you are coping with personal challenges or about your children or relationships. Perhaps there are events in your past that keep you from moving forward with your life. I invite you to a calm and welcoming space to help you find a way to resolve these issues. I am an empathetic listener who strives to help others rediscover strengths to heal their hearts so they can achieve their goals.

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a fact of life that everyone, at some point or another, faces struggles. Sometimes, in this society, it is deemed more acceptable to suffer in silence than to reach out and ask for the help you need. I believe that every experience you have had, every triumph, every setback, is important and gives meaning to who you are; your whole identity. I believe that every person has the answers they need, and sometimes it takes extra work to find them. I believe that a therapeutic space, where a person can be heard and valued as a person of infinite worth, is incredibly healing.

I utilize a blend of traditional talk therapy, art and play therapy techniques, and other active and creative interventions.
I believe that relationships are at the core of any effective therapy. It is important to me that the children and families I work with feel heard and respected. I am flexible in my approaches and how I deliver therapy. This allows me to be able to focus on the strengths of the child and family. I utilize interests, abilities, and passions to provide services that are engaging, comfortable, and impactful. I believe that children and adolescents thrive best in therapy when they are allowed to express themselves in the way that is most natural for them.

Using techniques such as art , challenging and changing thoughts through CBT, DBT, and somatic therapy can be helpful in managing symptoms and healing for you.
Coping with your anxiety or depression is hard, especially alone. How about starting in a safe space where, together, we can navigate through this. Are you struggling with communication and problem solving? Life is already too stressful to come home to feeling like no one is being heard or not being able to talk with your loved ones. Are you feeling challenged with the symptoms of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) like weight gain or hirsutism? I can help you feel supported and process those feelings that come with PCOS. Individual therapy sessions could be truly helpful focusing on the strengths you already have.

Therefore, I often adopt art and play therapies, along with a cognitive behavioral counseling and solution-oriented approaches.
I believe that when people seek counseling it is because they want to make a change in their lives, improve a life situation, make a decision, solve a problem or have greater understanding and insight to their lives. Counseling is a trusting partnership between client and counselor. A process of looking at and integrating thoughts, feelings and actions in a safe environment. It is not about telling you how or when to change, but rather finding what works best for you. Effective counseling requires a commitment of time, energy, and active participation by both client and counselor.

If you enjoy creativity I have training as an art therapist and love to include art in therapy.
I specialize in working with women who have been gaslighted, women in transition, trauma, anxiety, adult autism, and the LGBTQ community. What clients say is most important in their healing process is my holistic and mindful approach to their emotional issues. Neuroscience is now proving that focusing on thoughts and emotions is not enough to bring change when our brains are “jumbled” and we just can’t think our way out of problems. Without awareness of both our inner and outer worlds we can't get better. So I bring body awareness, sometimes called somatic therapy, into our collaborative work together. This makes a difference!

Art Therapy what a fantastic way of communication. You don't have to be an artist; you just need to trust the process. Sometimes words cannot express what we want to say or think; through art , you can.
