Therapy is taking our experiences and learning a new way to make our life more successful. It is my goal to assist you in meeting the goals that you have for you, your child, and your family as you work toward the “you” that you envision. We will work together from a strengths-based perspective to help you not just cope, but thrive in your experiences.
Finding the right words can make it difficult to fully express our wants, needs, and goals, so I use evidenced-based creative therapies incorporating art, music, mindfulness, and play. Working together, we will find new ways to interact and express ourselves. It is so important to me that you are able to express yourself in whatever method is most natural for you. Our time together will be spent encouraging independence and self-exploration to live, learn, and grow.
Over the past 20 years, I have added new strategies to my wheelhouse so that I can best meet the needs of individuals who have experienced traumatic events. What is traumatic for one person, may not be for another and I approach each situation based on your perspective. Our experiences do not define who we are. We get to choose the path we following to healing. I hope to be able to work with you to find ways to heal and thrive!
