Expressive Arts based, Trauma-Informed, Consent guided, Holistically minded, Body-Oriented Psychotherapy
My main approach is to meet you where you are on your journey, whether that be a stuck place, a painful place, a confused place, or wherever; and working together help you to get to where you would like to be. I utilize a holistic approach; combining cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and body oriented elements to treatment. I deeply value all the ways we communicate and express ourselves, so my approach uses many elements of non-verbal therapies, such as the expressive arts and body-oriented psychotherapies.
I gave a talk to a parents' group once and at the end of it, as I was speaking to one of the attendees, she said, "Oh, you are a person!" She said it with relief and appreciation in her eyes.
I think that was true compliment. She saw me as an equal as well as someone with something valuable to say. I would say that I strive for that everyday. Therapy isn't easy, and having a therapist that you can relate to and connect with makes all the difference.
Professional Supervision (group and individual) also offered
Supervision is a tool used by mental health professionals as part of their license requirements for professional development, however it can also be utilized by anyone working in a healing or helping profession.
Supervision is not only a time to trouble shoot concerns or ways to run the day to day workings of your business, but it is about exploring personal and professional growth. Supervision is a place to examine the tough places that arise when we, as humans, work with other humans. It is a place to explore our own boundaries and blind spots as well as our strengths and passions.
As a therapist, I am a companion. I try to help people tune into their own wisdom.
