Philosophy and Approach
I provide a safe and compassionate environment where my clients can explore some of their most difficult feelings. I help them move through painful, stuck places to healtheir and more satisfying lives.
I am a Registered Art Therapist and a Certified Jungian Psychotherapist. These trainings enable me to tailor a therapeutic approach for each client that can incorporate art therapy and sandtray therapy into more traditional talk psychotherapy. I also use cognitive-behaioral approaches when I judge these to be helpful. I am also trained in Imago Therapy, a specific therapy for work with couples.
