Values and Philosophy

I work from three primary concepts:

  • Mindfulness: Helping you become more aware of your identity, actions, intuitions, and encourage you to be authentic and present in all aspects of your life. This is a challenging and evocative process when overcoming traumatic history, depression, anxiety and loss of self.
  • Resilience: Something led you into therapy, be it an issue, loss, trauma, or simply a desire to understand yourself better. By merely engaging in the work of therapy you have shown motivation for creating a better life and I would like to both illuminate and help you master these skills.
  • Creativity: This awesome power we all have challenges us to be more than the sum of our parts, in order to transcend our own concepts for wellness. Learning perspectives and how to tap into creativity is foremost in my philosophy of wellness.

Therapeutic Technique and Methodology

As an Existential art therapist I am passionate about making a safe space in which the creative process of facilitating your personal meaning can occur. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client is a tool in this process. We create trust, understanding, and empathy necessary for the work of therapy. The work entails identifying issues and concerns and processing them in a constructive way. I am interested in holding hope for you on this journey, even when you are feeling hopeless. I think it is important to understand the connection between the mind and the body as well as the past and the present as challenges are confronted. I find the use of creativity, both in art making and perspective changing, very healing. It is an honor to guide you in the process of creating the life you desire.
