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.

Stepping into therapy may be due to depression, anxiety, phobias, relationship issues, sense of unhappiness, sense of emptiness or inability to find much meaning in life and living. It can be a choice we make to explore ourselves today, examine the past or expand on ideas and future dreams. If you are driven to grow, develop and have a natural curiosity in examining life, living and discovering more about your own path, then psychotherapy is one way to engage in series of exploratory dialogues to live with higher level of awareness & consciousness.

People who enter therapy are the bravest people in the world. The only difference between you and everyone else is that they are choosing to suffer in silence (or not so much silence), and you have decided that you deserve better. You want more.
