Are you, your child or teenager feeling stuck, overwhelmed or confused by life’s difficulties?
Are you or your family facing a transition that seems daunting and hard to tackle?
If so, then I believe I can help. If given support I believe people of all ages have the courage, ability and inner strength to make changes.
I provide a trusting environment, free from judgment and infused with compassion where an individual feels free enough to explore thoughts and feelings. Together, using both art therapy and verbal therapy we can collaboratively begin to unravel tangled issues until viable options emerge.
I offer support, guidance and an array of clinical skills to help clients make informed choices that will enhance their sense of well being and build meaning and satisfaction in their lives. Often I utilize art therapy as another avenue of communication. Art therapy can serve as a way of creatively tapping into peoples strengths and problem solving skills to help resolve issues. There are no specific art skills needed …. art therapy is simply another way to look at things differently.
I hold a Masters Degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Marylhurst University. I am a licensed professional counselor and a certified art therapist. Over the past 10 years I have experience in assessing and treating children, adolescents and adults with a variety of challenges that include ADHD, high functioning autism, bipolar, depression/ anxiety, obsession/compulsion, psychosis, trauma and grief and loss.
My specialties and interests include:
Depression and anxiety
Parent and child relationships
Trauma and abuse
Self esteem and self compassion enhancement
Aspergers and high functioning autism
I am committed to affordable therapy. I offer a free 30 minute consultation session to determine if I am the right person to meet your needs. My standard fee is $80 for a 50 minute session and I offer sliding scale options.
