I view the process of therapy as a way to see one’s own wholeness and divine ability to make empowered choices. I am continually amazed at the courage and resilience that my clients show. From my experience of working with adults and children, I see a common denominator in everyone: an inner truth and wisdom that is waiting to be called upon and expressed.
Therapy for Adults
As an expressive arts therapist, I gently walk with clients on their journey towards meeting and embracing more of the parts of themselves with compassion and presence. Many women I work with have tried conventional therapy and are ready to explore more creative ways of healing as a way to discover the deeper things they want to work on in order to create a rich and meaningful life for themselves. My specialty is using varied approaches such as talk, art, intuitive writing, guided imagery, gratitude tools and breathing. Through EFT tapping and IFS techniques my clients become more able to let go of old beliefs and blocks, and make the positive changes they had been hoping for. I've seen women thrive in their relationships with themselves and others using these approaches.
Through my training and experience as a massage therapist for women, I have seen the benefits of inviting the body into the therapeutic process. Body work along with mindfulness techniques help my clients become more present and empowered. They are able to release tension and the effects of trauma that have been stored in the body for years.
For women who feel they would benefit from this approach, a combination of psychotherapy and massage can be incorporated. We can discuss this during our consultation to see if it is the right approach for you.
The effects of art therapy on children are incredible. I've watched kids flourish in their self esteem, embrace their strengths and make room for the things they find challenging. My young clients have learned to identify and share their feelings, develop self and other awareness and come up with their own solutions. Through non-verbal mediums such as art, play and sandtray, kids are also able to share about and work through things they feel are too hard to put into words. The therapeutic relationship helps my clients improve social skills and develop trust. They leave sessions feeling more relaxed, seen and understood. I’ve seen the best results when parents participate by coming to parent sessions.
