If you are interested in individual work, I offer traditional therapy as well as holistic approaches to healing. Individual sessions can and will often include guided meditation, art-making, exposure to nature, writing, and dream work. However, just talking is always okay too! I have been trained in the following approaches to therapy:

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy- Enhanced (CBT-E)

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Expressive Arts Therapy

  • Trauma-Informed Expressive Arts Therapy

  • Mindfulness-Based Practice 

I am a Registered Art Therapist and often utilize art-making in my sessions. What does this mean? Art can communicate things that are difficult or even sometimes impossible to put into words. It is a universal language in human beings and is one of the first forms of communication we naturally experience. There is no right or wrong way to make art in session. Often times it is more about what it feels like to make art than what you end up creating. Art can be a door to our unconscious selves, and can help with exploring our own identity and soul's path.

I am a firm believer that as human beings our environment impacts our well-being. Years ago our ancestors depended on the earth for survival where relationships with the land and its animals were an integral part of life. Today there is a disconnect with nature due to high-paced jobs and technological advances. Many of us go days without having our bare feet make contact with the earth. Studies today are finding that chronic pain and physical ailments are related to this changing lifestyle. In our work together, I will bring in elements of nature in both art-making and counseling sessions. There will also be times I will invite you to make art, write, or meditate outside.
