How I work:
Everyone has a story to tell, and I think it's important that they get heard. I am here to listen, and offer a safe and confidential space to help clients work through the process of healing. I utilize a holistic, and client centered approach to meet my clients where they are at. My work style is mostly eclectic as I like to use a combination of different approaches like mindfulness practices, CBT, ACT, and sometimes art therapy and therapeutic art. The connection of mind, body, and spirit, is the key element to the way I work. Every client's treatment plan is individually tailored to their own unique needs, which we collaborate on together. I know getting started is the most difficult step to therapy, and it is not an easy thing to do. Therapy can be fun, soothing, inspiring, and magical, but it can also be scary, challenging, overwhelming, and messy; and I am here to walk with you on that journey, whatever it may look like. Honoring your humanness helps us grow. Trust the process.
I’ve gotten more into fiber arts lately, and have been working on some knitting projects. I recently completed a cropped sweater, and I’m planning to learn some new stitches for future project ideas.
I absolutely love art of all kinds; creating it, viewing it, listening to it, all of it. Van Gogh is my favorite artist, and charcoal and nupastel are my favorite media to use when drawing. I also like nature, gardening, music, watching movies and staying active. I’m very passionate about mental health awareness and ending the stigma surrounding it. I love a good inspirational quote, so you may see them around in my office.
