and art therapy for self-acceptance and creative transformation
is practical and down to earth,
engaging empathy, humor and your natural creative abilities
to solve problems, have more authentic relationships
with yourself and others, and cope with losses and transitions.
I believe that empathic self-acceptance is the opening
to change and self-empowerment. My theoretical orientation
comes from attachment, trauma, and cognitive behavioral
theories in addition to the extensive training I received
in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
for adults coping with a broad spectrum of life situations.
My areas of specialization are trauma and loss, life
transitions, caregiving and aging, and body image concerns.
Professional services for clinicians include supervision
for LPC interns, art therapy supervision for ATR credentials
and Art therapy board certification exam coaching.
