My clients may identify as sensitive, managing depression, anger, anxiety, or loneliness. They crave a space to look within and befriend their inner world. They feel tired of the habitual loops that play out in their relationships and want to have healthier relationships with their partners, their family members, and their life path. They may feel disconnected from their creative power or want to embody their creative self more. They want new tools outside of traditional talk therapy.
Benefits of art therapy may include the development of non-verbal forms of self-expression, trauma resolution, increased self-esteem, and nervous system regulation/stress management. Art materials can be used in the session, or, prompts can be given to complete outside of the therapy space. I hold the belief that art is like a dream, or a snapshot of some facet of the psyche, latent with imagery, waiting to be de-coded and integrated into one’s daily life.
Transpersonal psychology is a therapeutic discipline that focuses on the importance of experiences that are considered to be outside of one's habitual waking consciousness. This may include topics such as spirituality, ritual, mindfulness, and non-ordinary states of consciousness. I enjoy discussing and supporting clients in finding relationships with each of these topics, through personal history and clinical training.
