About My Clients

As someone navigating the world between cultures, ethnicities, and labels, you have been given the gift of insight and adaptability. You can see what others don't, and are highly sensitive to what goes unspoken or unacknowledged. The gift of being adaptable in any environment is a strength, and it also presents a challenge.  When we are highly skilled at anticipating & understanding  the feelings and needs of others, we run the risk of losing ourselves in adapting to those around us.

My Background and Approach

Using expressive arts modalities of visual art making, movement, and writing we'll look at what is going right in your life, as well as what needs to be let go of or transformed. You may be someone that others see as strong, flexible, creative, and thoughtful. Others feel comfortable coming to you for advise or help. People in your life may rely on you for support or look to you for leadership. Cultivating your inherent gifts and insight, you can redirect your strength, generosity, and compassion to yourself in order to live with a sense of contentment and ease. You know that you can be of support to others- now learn how to offer that support to yourself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The ultimate aim of therapy is greater connection- with oneself and others- and greater communication. The path to both connection and communication is made through increasing awareness, developing a stance of openness and acceptance, and in doing so, gaining confidence and comfort in our authenticity. Learning to relate with clarity and honesty to the painful or unwanted/unwelcome parts of ourselves allows us to relate with authenticity, flexibility, and compassion with both ourselves and others.
