We are all born with the ability to imagine, play, explore and create. But more often than not, trauma and difficult life events keep us from moving forward. The role of creative arts therapy is to help us imagine new life possibilities again. As a psychotherapist with an expertise in trauma informed work, I use the creative arts therapies to achieve the therapeutic goals of self-expression, personal empowerment, and emotional and physical integration. With over 20 years of experience, I offer individual and group therapy, intentionally combining talk therapy, drama therapy, psychodrama, embodied practices and AF-EMDR to address emotional issues in innovative, unique ways.
I work from a psychodynamic and relational lens, meeting people where they are, and making sure that whatever therapeutic methods I offer suit the individual's needs. The therapeutic space is co-created developing trust and offering acceptance. I am a believer that when words are not enough, creative and dramatic tools can offer alternate ways of exploration
