Do you feel trapped? Unmotivated? Misunderstood? Do you not feel like "yourself" anymore? I can help you find peace of mind to enjoy life once again. I am an art therapist and mood disorders specialist. I promote healing, acceptance and kindness to yourself. I walk with you to see the world differently. Together, we will prioritize life. Together, we will overcome trauma, dig into challenges, and discover new solutions.Together, we will find what makes you whole.
I strongly believe you should like and trust your therapist with your personal story. I listen with an open mind and heart as we talk about what is important to you. I also support you as we talk about more difficult topics at your own pace.
We work through artwork or insightful conversations. With honesty and compassion, you will gain a deeper understanding about yourself and how to improve your life today.
