Each person in a family impacts each other. Family Therapy is not only for people with small children. I specialize in helping adult members of families to improve their communication and resolve conflicts. The goal is to teach family members skills to work through their long standing dysfunctional patterns, to deepen their family connections.
Sometimes life's struggles will test your ability to find meaning of the suffering that your personal life's challenges hold. I will help guide you through your own life process of transforming your fears, needs and desires towards acceptance and greater peace...this process can be done through art therapy or talk therapy--or both.
Art therapy can be a vehicle , a catalyst which can propel you into accessing feelings and thoughts that may become blocked through our ability to intellectualize or suppress. Children, teens ,adults who want to ' uncover' new insights which can then- be discussed with the therapist--can propel you into deeper parts of yourself through the creative process. No art experience necessary!
I enjoy working with women around areas of Personal growth, self exploration, issues around self esteem, body image issues, parenting and family relationships, and transitions of all kinds. I utilize art therapy and counseling to help deepen personal awareness of' limitations' that are holding you back from enjoying your life .
'Grief counseling becomes necessary when a person is so disabled by their grief, overwhelmed by loss to the extent that their normal coping processes are disabled or shut down. Grief counseling --art or verbal therapy, can facilitate expression of emotion and help to reduce the feelings of isolation, numbness and distress, by slowly processing feelings that arise.
I work with adults, teens, and children seeking relief from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, poor self-assertion skills, identity issues, life stress--- such as death of a loved one, divorce, job loss, career change. Depression is real. Suffering can feel incapacitating. Therapy is one step in the right direction to helping yourself feel alive again and fully connected.
Youth today face an ever-growing number of challenges. From family stress, school deadlines, social pressures. If left to spiral, these can result in them suffering from depression, stress-related conditions, low self-esteem, drug and alcohol abuse, and relational difficulties. Therapy can help support your child/teen cope with life stress in a creative and interactive approach.
Parenting can be challenging. At times, we are tested and we may begin to feel off balance and need to have time to reconnect to the deeper parts of yourself that may need your attention, you may feel numb, angry, lost. Therapy can help you reconnect and discover what you need and how to regain a sense of control and peace for yourself and your family.
