Are you concerned about your child or adolescent? Are they struggling with worry, sadness, or behavioral issues? Or are you struggling with similar feelings in your own life that don’t allow you to be your happiest, best self? My approach will help you identify triggers to difficult feelings and behaviors that get in the way of enjoying life.
Experience is often the best teacher, and I enjoy the opportunity to help clients find what they need through a creative experience combined with conventional talk therapy. Often a therapeutic activity (i.e. art or play) can facilitate the conversation you need to have with yourself. I believe a safe, trusting, & supportive relationship provides the space for this to happen, and a creative therapist can facilitate activities & dialogue which bring about new awareness and experience. I use cognitive, behavioral, motivational, solution focused, and mindfulness approaches to facilitate growth and change.
I have advanced training in expressive therapies. Expressive therapies are especially helpful for children who naturally communicate through play. For adolescents and adults activity can facilitate communication or insight unable to be heard and recognized through normal dialogue. Believing in a future is hope, and therapy strives to create a future starting with hope and strengthened by good design.
