It isn't difficult to feel scared, unlovable, vulnerable and not good enough in "our world gone mad", let alone if you have a history of being abused or neglected. Therapy can help you slowly make sense of the past so that you can encounter the present moment with more awareness and vigor. I am psychotherapist with an abiding love of the arts and work with sensitive individuals, many of whom have histories of abuse/neglect and are struggling to make sense of their past and present lives in order to find a greater sense of freedom/comfort within their own skin.
My MA degree is in psychology with an emphasis in expressive arts therapy. Since 2005 I have provided therapy to children, teens, adults and families and recently completed 2 years of post graduate training in psychodynamically oriented psychotherapy. In addition, I provide trainings in expressive arts therapy to other professionals.
I find it important to examine the societal context of individual suffering, particularly themes related to oppression and injustice, and tend to be the most well suited for working with sensitive and creative individuals as well as those who struggle with depression, anxiety, self esteem and loss/grief.
