Being mindful can make it easier to savor the pleasures in life as they occur, help you become fully engaged in activities, and create a greater capacity to deal with adverse events. Many individuals report greater resiliency and deeper self-compassion.
As an art therapist, I believe we are all artists who deserve the pleasure of art making. I have used this modality in a variety of ways; helping people process grief and trauma externally, as a means to improve reality testing for individuals with psychosis, as a tool for depression and anxiety, and as a method to increase insight.
I bring a holistic view to addiction recovery, helping others to bring attention to development of the whole person. You can think of this as different levels; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, or as accessing inner and outer resources. I have 8 years counseling experience working with individuals in various stages of their journey in recovery in a variety of settings.
I provide an LGBTQ affirmative approach to psychotherapy which recognizes the immense value of each LGBTQ person’s well-being and creates a supportive environment for personal acceptance and growth. Experienced working with youth and adults, I work to provide a supportive environment to serve as a counter-force to issues regarding minority status and to help liberate your full potential.
Survivors of trauma may feel as though their nervous systems are 'stuck'. I am experienced in the treatment of trauma symptoms, and will work with you to understand your own stress reactions, moving towards a life of greater ease. I'm a certified clinical trauma professional, and can integrate multiple healing modalities in our work together.
I incorporate a mindfulness-based approach to working with anxiety, working to help others change their relationship to their own anxious thoughts. Mindfulness can help us focus on the present moment rather than on feelings of worry or panic, meaning anxious thoughts become temporary, and are no longer viewed as reflections of reality.
Therapy can ease depression and help silence that inner critical voice that keeps you stuck. Using an individualized approach, I will work with you to get past these painful feelings and get back to your life. Treatment may include integrating new skills for coping, and techniques to help keep you focused on the present rather than ruminating on the past.
