I enjoy working collaboratively with adults and teens to create a comforting and safe space where insight into inner processes can begin to unfold. When we understand and have compassion for our particular reactions to things, we begin to live in a state of greater peace and become able to connect to our deepest and most unique resources. Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

As a collaborative therapist my goal is to help with physical, mental & emotion awareness, healing with acceptance of the past and how to take action moving forward towards a desired future. Art therapy in combination with talk therapy will offer personal insight, decrease anxiety and improve one’s overall well-being. With 20 years experience using art with families my focus is to help with transitions such as grief, adoption, divorce, addiction, eating disorders, and trauma.

Do you feel like you have done a lot of self-work and there's still something left that is not going anywhere? OR have you experienced one or multiple difficult events in your life that are simply too hard to overcome on your own? It really doesn't matter whether it happened as a child, teen, or adult, these experiences feel real and sometimes as if they are still happening right now. You see, we tend to embody them, meaning our body stores them and when we get "triggered" by a sounds or touch, for example, we are reminded of something that happened to us, which we have not yet fully processed. You and I can work through that!

My expertise lies in working with men transitioning into, or out of, relationships. Moving from single life into relationship with another is a daunting task. How do I maintain my own identity, my own authenticity, and still keep my partner happy? What are good boundaries? How, and when, do I say no? Equally difficult is the shift from partnership into single life. Who am I now? How do I keep a friendship with my ex (or not!) while moving into the dating scene? I've had great success helping my clients succeed and thrive during either of these challenging times.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. 90403 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in 90403.
