About

Life is full of changes, we can count on this! During these ever changing times and seasons in living, our lives can be thrown off balance! Counseling support provides a special ‘time out’ where you can identify your current needs and address current symptoms and issues in need of attention and change from a compassionate and caring therapist. During this season with on-going losses, as a Certified Grief Educator, integrating issues of loss and grief into your counseling session remains so important! We all grieve differently...having a safe-place to process your grief, to remember your loved one, is a special honor and privilege.
Using a Problem-Solution & HOPE filled focus, I have had the privilege of seeing individuals learn, grow and heal from trauma, pain and problems with increased confidence. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy and Brainspotting are powerful tools for effective healing and overall wellness. Your treatment plan is designed to meet your immediate needs.
In the nurturing and creative environment of the Expressive Arts Studio & Counseling Center, countless individuals have made effective changes, enhancing their overall wellness goals and potential. Is NOW a good time to receive & believe for change? Give yourself 'permission' to take are of you...Call today, let me know your needs. I am here for YOU!
