Individual Therapy

I provide therapy to adults experiencing a wide range of strengths and challenges. My approach is trauma-informed and person-centered. I integrate expressive arts with Internal Family Systems (IFS) to help you process feelings and experiences, reduce inner conflict, and improve relationships. Together, we will create a collaborative map for your healing and change. 

I specialize in:

  • Trauma (single incident and complex developmental)

  • Grief and loss

  • Secondary trauma of helping professionals

  • Creativity blocks 

  • Major life transitions

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Personal growth

I believe:

  • Each person has within them what they need to heal and change.

  • All people are innately creative.

  • In meeting each client exactly where they are.

  • In unconditional positive regard, compassion, and authenticity.

  • In creating and holding space for safe explorations.

  • Healing and change are creative acts.

Art therapy
I am creative, but I may have lost my spark.

I have lost touch with my authentic creativity.

I am hurting, lonely, angry, scared.

I am strong.

I am a survivor.

I am grieving.

I long to connect with myself and with others.

I have resources but I need to remember how to access them.

I have lost my voice.

I want to sing

to use my voice

to cry

to scream

but I hold back

I am closed off. It’s safer that way.

But, I sense there is a better way. I am tired of being scared, angry, silent. I want to find my voice. I want to dance, to play, to feel joy. I want to shine.

I know there is a better way – to be, to live, to work, to love.
I am scared, angry, hurt, lost, but seeking a way forward.
A way to the light.
To the joy.
Listen.
