When words alone are not enough, creative explorations can provide a safe and supportive way to connect and work toward personal growth.
For people who are articulate and intelligent, connecting what you know to what you feel can sometimes be surprisingly difficult. I work on connecting thoughts and feelings through a combination of talking, exploring familiar songs, creating improvised music, vocalizing, movement, visual arts, and mindfulness techniques. No prior experience in creative arts is needed to fully benefit from creative arts psychotherapy.
I specialize in combining verbal and creative elements to gently explore patterns and relationships in a client's life.
Creative exploration and words together help me develop a trusting relationship with my clients and work toward goals that will strengthen an understanding of self and support well-being.
