"If you were told you did not matter growing up, through actions or words, this will have an impact on your ability to recognize your worth. Growing up in a home with alcohol abuse, homophobia, emotional abuse, or excessive criticism can lead to feelings of worthlessness, shame, and self hatred. You may seek validation from others and fear their disapproval. This often leads to putting others needs before your own. Not understanding your worth, you may struggle following your dreams or have a career where you feel overworked and under valued. You deserve the confidence to feel in control in your life. "

"Life has many challenges that we struggle with, many coming internally from our own minds. I can help navigate you through your journey to overcome intrusive, negative self-talk, low self-esteem and self-worth, trauma, and to assist with changing that inner voice that tells you, “you have to be perfect.” Using art therapy as well as cognitive-behavioral techniques, I help people who are looking to work through their trauma, anxiety and depression, and grief and loss. Together we can work together to gain insight, develop coping skills and mindfulness techniques, defeat the negative self-talk and create a life worth living. "

These might include feelings of shame, discontentment, apathy, anger or even numbness to any feelings. The behaviors might range from avoidance to compulsive and addictive. Are you experiencing problems with yourself or others? In therapy, you'll learn, be challenged and gain tools and insight to handle the difficult feelings while making decisions to do the hard work to change behaviors. "
