“Have you ever felt that making choices can be really difficult? Do you find yourself saying the phrase, ‘I don’t know’ a lot when having to make decisions?”
Exploring the workings of our minds can be a little scary (sometimes a lot scary!).  But once we begin the journey of self-exploration, we can make miraculous changes in our lives.  We can start to make choices that will move us forward and bring us more satisfaction, helping to find clarity and achieve goals.  I believe in therapy and know it can help you do this.
Psychotherapy will transform you. It will change your life for the better. You will experience more freedom and a stronger sense of purpose. My services are geared towards adults and teens dealing with anxiety in its various forms- panic attacks, generalized anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety, and phobias in addition to symptoms related to ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) in addition to depression and all of its manifestations.
I love doing exploratory therapy that will aid in finding the sources of your suffering but also the sources of your creativity. You will steer our course in therapy, with my gentle guidance when needed. I believe you are the expert about YOU….even if you don’t feel that way sometimes.  You have inner strength and wisdom that just needs to be rediscovered or uncovered.

We can do Talk Therapy, and I also specialize in Art Therapy.  Art Therapy is a type of psychotherapy during which making visual art is used.  We work through challenges using art-making and creativity to problem solve, to find relief in expressing our feelings and thoughts, and we sometimes don’t even have to use a lot of words during the session because we’re expressing all we need through what we are making.  This takes a lot of pressure off of having to “talk about it” (referring to talking about whatever problem you might be coming to therapy with).

I will provide you with a judgement-free zone where you can explore life choices and lead a more satisfying and authentic life.
