Practice Description:
Few things are as difficult as seeing your child struggle emotionally or behaviorally. Whether issues have come up recently or have been ligering for years, the decision of taking your loved one to a therapist is not an easy one to make. My person-centered modality allows connection and trust to build in a gentle, natural manner in a safe place.
I am trained to pick up on nonverbal symbols and metaphors that are often expressed through art and the creative process, concepts that are usually difficult to express with words. Though art therapy is my speciality, I also conduct services via Talk Therapy if a client wishes.
