About

Are you looking for someone to share your story with? It can be helpful to release thoughts and feelings with a professional to gain insight and assistance processing. Do you have anxiety, mood swings, trouble sleeping or have experienced trauma and never talked about it? Talking about your story in a safe place can change the next chapter. if you are ready to talk about your story, you can learn coping skills to help make that next chapter easier to live with. Are you interested in learning how art therapy can help with all these concerns? or nervous about using the art tools ? We will go at your pace and match your comfort level.
Our brains were conditioned to know images before words. Through the use of creative materials or use of metaphors with games, you can work through emotions which may not be easily accessed from the subconscious mind. Process oriented as opposed to product - You will not need prior experience with art, and you don't have to do art if you choose not to.
When trying something new, even as simple as counseling for the first time, The subconscious has a way of speaking for you. Through creative materials or use of play in session you may find connections within yourself. Art Therapy can be as simple as coloring while talking, or using metaphors to help relate. We will figure out what works for you together.
