Counseling

Hello, and welcome. This page will tell you more about counseling with me, and you can use the rest of this site to learn more about who I am and about expressive arts therapy. You are also welcome to contact me with any questions, or visit my resources page.

My approach to counseling is integrative, somatic, and strengths-based.
I work with adolescents and adults and I specialize in trauma, grief and loss, identity issues, spirituality, relationship issues, and working with those who've experienced abuse of any kind.

Life can be complicated

I bring a compassionate and focused attention to our time together so our relationship can meet you where you are and move at your pace. Whether or not you have clear language for what's troubling you, it tugs on you and holds you back from feeling fully alive, fully you. I'm devoted to learning how our relationship can help you access greater clarity, resilience, and meaning in your life. I'm especially interested in finding the kinds of support that work well for you.

I'm comfortable talking about uncomfortable things.

I offer a space where you're welcome to talk about—and question—anything. I’ll encourage you to pay attention to what you feel both in and out of session. Together, we can start to sort out what feels chaotic and contact what feels true for you. As a certified expressive arts therapist, I can offer you other ways of expressing yourself if you can't find the words—or, if you're feeling stuck and want to try something new.

It's a brave step to ask for help.

If you're feeling apprehensive about reaching out, I understand!  Take your time and when you're ready, you can contact me to set up a free, 15-minute phone call.

“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.
As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.
 
This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.” ― Lao Tzu
