I believe in a humanistic approach to therapy. My intention as a therapist is to develop an authentic relationship with my clients that allows them to explore their feelings and reach their individual goals at their own pace. I am empathetic, engaging, and nonjudgemental. I tend to take a strength-based approach with my clients, and infuse humor into my therapeutic work. While therapy may be difficult at times, it doesn’t always have to feel heavy. I believe you know yourself better than anyone else, and my role is to assist you in your process of change and growth.
I offer art as a way to visually explore emotions and feelings. It can be an alternative to talk psychotherapy, or work alongside it. I would describe art therapy as a way to outwardly examine one’s internal feelings and emotions for the purpose of self-realization and growth.
The use of simple art materials can deepen the therapeutic process by bringing one’s unconscious feelings and experiences up to consciousness. Click here to read more about my thoughts on art therapy.
