We are currently living in very uncertain times. Within this uncertainty, it is important to find a relationship that will help you sustain important relationships. Part of what makes our relationship work, beyond my clinical skills, is when my clients feel heard and understood. My clients often present with a variety of issues including relationship issues, anger, depression, anxiety, and/or problems with unhealthy substance use/abuse.

Hello Creatives! As an Art Therapist/Creative Coach I have a passion for helping you visualize the path you want to take in life through recharging your creativity. I am looking for clients seeking to incorporate their livelihood's creativity that provides a positive and balanced well-being. If you feel burnt out through the lifestyle you are currently practicing, I am here to remind you that conversation, expression, and exploration are the keys to turning a new leaf. Today, it seems we are looking towards the future and worrying about the past, causing stress overload capacity.
Finding a caring, dedicated therapist to help you with your psychological or physical difficulties is important. One who is also experienced, skilled and knowledgeable is even more beneficial to your success. Your time and energy are valuable, and I avoid dwelling on directionless talk; focusing, instead, on developing effective actions and solutions. My sessions are two hours as I have found that to be more effective than a single hour. In helping you I draw on a wide range of rich, creative therapeutic approaches, including behavioral and cognitive therapies, hypnosis, EMDR, as well as methods derived from other healing practices.
Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed by daily stressors, struggling with internal thoughts and judgments or stuck in your anxiety, depression or relationship patterns, these challenges are often difficult to navigate on your own. I follow a solution focused and cognitive-behavioral orientation to therapy, which focuses on how thoughts affect the way people feel and act. My approach is supportive, non-judgmental, collaborative, and strengths-focused, yet tailored to each client. I strive to provide a safe, warm, and insightful environment in order to help individuals work through their stressors.
My therapeutic approach is tailored to the needs of the individual and their family system. I focus on developing a welcoming and meaningful therapeutic relationship allowing for the creation of a safe space for the client. I commonly support clients by using a strength-based approach, questioning patterns of thoughts that do not serve, tapping into the client's sense of purpose and the practice of meditation and mindfulness. I have training in trauma informed care, understanding developmental issues, identifying strengths in families and the use of solution-focused counseling to support clients on their life's journey.
I welcome you. I know that choosing to see a therapist is one of the most difficult decisions one can make and I applaud you. Keep going.
I provide a warm, safe and confidential environment. This enables my clients to express themselves without judgement. I help people deal with stress, life events, mental health concerns, and problems that can seem insurmountable. Together, we overcome self-doubt and negative thinking, and strengthen decision-making and life strategies.
Creative solutions to complicated lives are possible if we are willing to change our patterns. Join me in learning how to enjoy your life.
