My philosophy is simple. I believe we all have the capacity and innate strength to engage in the healing process. Through a psychodynamic and humanistic approach, I cater and support our sessions around your level of comfort, readiness and willingness for engagement. As an alternative to talk therapy, I offer the creative arts therapies as a means to safely and comfortably facilitate self-expression. By utilizing the non-verbal art process, clients can gain insight and a greater sense of awareness of how their thought patterns, behaviors, strengths and challenges play into their current life.
Therapy is a sacred space and should not be rushed or taken lightly. Investing in yourself is the greatest medicine you can provide for your well being. Be kind to yourself as you embark on this incredible journey. Remember, you are the best expert in knowing what you need.
