Creative Arts Counseling and Consulting
Today's world can present multiple challenges for everyone. Stressors increase-you've experienced loss, illness, or you are experiencing a change you hadn't anticipated (job loss, divorce, illness); Perhaps you're finding yourself lacking energy, losing confidence, or struggling with mood changes; Maybe you've realized that your relationships are being impacted by these challenges, changes, and behaviors...Whatever the issue, people considering entering into a therapeutic relationship are usually experiencing some degree of distress. Some aspect of life has gotten out of balance, and you may be feeling the need to look at this more closely, process and communicate this distress with a compassionate, understanding, and skilled therapist.
As a licensed creative arts therapist, and licensed mental health counselor, I am able to work with clients in a comprehensive holistic manner; addressing mind, body, and emotions using both traditional counseling approaches, and creative arts techniques. I have over 18 years of professional experience, and have been trained in mindfulness based stress reduction, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). You will be supported as we work together, to unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back so that you can experience a more fulfilling balanced life, and a positive sense of wellbeing.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
