My approach is a client-centered, non-judgmental therapy using creative & expressive techniques. I specialize in using Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Psychodrama and Expressive Art Therapy to assist my clients achieve the changes and healing work they are looking for.
The goal of any therapeutic method is to increase understanding, resolve problems and practice new life skills and behaviors.
I am influenced by the latest in neuroscience that offers specific, tangible techniques, “mindsight tools” assisting both children and adult clients with the power of their own mind to integrate the brain and promote well being.
The integration of traditional psychotherapy: knowledge and resources on emotional development, brain science and cognitive and behavioral interventions. with creative expressive art modalities.
Common issues treated in psychotherapy include anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, anger management, grief, adjustment to separations and divorce.
Research proves that a professional, trusting, and therapeutic relationship is key to transformation for any child, adult or family. Only by creating a trusting therapist-client relationship can important healing work required to support change occur.
I consider it a privilege to facilitate healing from challenging issues and to support my clients in accessing insights and strengths. I don’t consider myself just a ‘how to’ stop on your journey. I guide you from where you are to where you might like to be in different areas of your life.
