Art Therapy

Art Therapy is a powerful process that goes straight to the source of our being to find meaning. It bypasses all the mental chatter of the mind and tunes us into our creative, intuitive side. 

 

Art Therapy is a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by the Art Therapist, use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem.

Sessions meet weekly for one-hour.

Integrative, Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy

Self-portrait

My goal with Trauma work is Empowerment. We get there through a rich combination of Psychoeducation, Parts work (IFS/TIST), Sensorimotor work and Mindfulness. Integration of Art Therapy, Sand Tray, EMDR are all great additions to this work. 

Building resources, skills, self-compassion and healthy boundary work are essential components of this work. I encourage Curiosity, Discovery and Self-Knowing. This is an incredible journey of healing that requires a lot of safety in the therapy space, and an attuned therapist that fully supports the client in their unique, individual process. 

Common concerns I work with include Childhood Trauma, Attachment wounds, Codependency, Dissociation, Narcissistic Caregivers, Self-Esteem.

Sand Tray Therapy

2015-03-25 17.16.56.jpg

A powerful therapeutic technique that facilitates the psyche's natural capacity for healing. Sand tray therapy allows a person to construct his or her own microcosm using miniatures and sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of the person’s own life and allows him or her the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self.
