My philosophy in working with clients is to build a trusting relationship by learning their story - their background, their current experience, their strengths, and their challenges. We can then work together to use these strengths to help craft a new story, where they are able to face the challenges and begin shaping a new future. I believe in hope and transformation and see psychotherapy as a key to collaboratively unlocking a new beginning.
I have experience working with both children and adults experiencing severe and persistent mental health disorders, as well as, anxiety & mood disorders. I am professionally trained in Art Therapy and utilize directives and therapeutic artmaking within sessions, as needed, in order to assist clients in strength development and healing. I implement CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Mindfulness, and Art Therapy within sessions. I believe in the power of meeting a client where they’re at with an open mind. If you or your child are struggling and feel as though we’d be a good fit, please reach out for a consultation today! I look forward to meeting with you and getting on the path to healing.
