creative arts & counseling
20 years’ practice converging in a new way to help you rediscover joy and healing through creativity.
My Approach is both traditional and experiential.
I use talk therapy as a way to get to know you, identify your goals, and identify some of your patterns. This way we can figure out what hasn’t been working and where you want to go.
I also use creative arts therapies such as making art, writing, and music to help you engage deeper and lovingly integrate parts of yourself that you haven’t been able to access or accept.
Mindfulness is a way to become more aware with what’s going on and to work with anxiety. Somatic (body) techniques help us go deeper to help you heal more fully.
