Trust the Process
This is my belief. I feel that through working through issues or stressors, no matter how difficult, trusting in the therapeutic process can be healing.
I am a registered art therapist and utilize artmaking in therapy, if the client is open to this. I feel that the art making process can be healing for the mind, body, and soul. Art with the therepeutic process can coordinate together to utilize non-verbal communication and exploration. I have knowledge in various media including sculpture, paint, pastels, printmaking, collage, and more. I encourage clients to explore new artforms and to promote the artistic growth of the individual.
I have worked with various ages and diagnoses, my specialty being high-risk adolescents. I look to challenge myself to incorporate the client’s interests and hobbies into therapy. My goal is to build a calm, honest, and safe place to create and discuss the client’s needs. I encourage self-discovery and coping skills tailored to individual clients.
