I am a psychotherapist, educator and trainer with over 20 years experience working with individuals, children, families and organizations. I enjoy working with a range of clients from diverse cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds on issues ranging from anxiety and grief to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), self-harm and difficulty in interpersonal relationships. As an Expressive Arts Therapist specializing in mindfulness, I use visual art, music, movement, play and integrative mind-body therapeutic approaches in working with my clients. It continues to inspire and humble me to witness the power of the creative process open doors for people in the most unexpected ways.
Through the use of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), I also focus my approach towards helping my clients process longstanding and recent trauma. The power of EMDR to address core traumas and early concepts of self is beyond words. In conjunction with the expressive arts and mindfulness, I have found EMDR to have a profound impact on clients, helping them move beyond blocks they have struggled with for years and create new ways of experiencing the world. It is truly inspiring to support others in becoming powerful agents of change and creating greater happiness in their lives.
Clients tell me that they get comfort from my empathic attunement, proactive approach and willingness to support them to move through painful feelings and life circumstances. One client shared, “I asked you for a flower, you gave a garden.” My goal is to grow gardens with you.
I encourage you to call or sign up for a complementary 20 minute consultation. We will use the time to discover more about what can work for you as well as get a better sense of how we might best work together.
