Services I Offer

I provide individual therapy to adults. I also offer group therapy.

Adoption-related issues

I provide therapy to help process history, manage trauma, relationships, grief, and loss.

Clinical Art Therapy

Active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.

Art Therapy Groups

Group work provides a dynamic and supportive setting to learn, share, and work through sometimes difficult issues alongside others facing similar situations.

Trauma-related issues

It takes time to recover and that ongoing response to trauma is normal. You are not forgetting the traumatic experience, but healing means having fewer symptoms that affect you less.

Art Therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.

Art Therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensory-motor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.

A mental health professional with clinical training on adoption issues understands adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive parent’s history (pre- and post-adoption traumas) needs to be taken into greater consideration when doing an adoption sensitive assessment.
