About My Clients

My clients are sensitive, resilient, creative people who are feeling stuck, tired, hurt, or struggling. I help them process trauma so they can reconnect with themselves and others as well as shift old patterns so they can live more freely in the present. We spend time recovering and uncovering their resources. I respect the dedication it takes to live an authentic life, how each has survived to be where they are, and I provide that same dedication and authenticity to each of my clients.

My Background and Approach

I am trained in counseling and art therapy and have experience in a residential and outpatient treatment center that provides individualized treatment. I am part of a group practice called Wellspring Counseling http://www.wellspringlife.com/ and have my own practice www.mendarttherapy.com. I use a combination of therapies in my approach- psychodynamic psychotherapy and new therapies that are considered to incorporate the body- as these provide more opportunity to reintegrate trauma in the brain. We always work with what is comfortable with the client, to stay resourced and grounded in the session, yet can use creative ways of using art or experiential approaches to help with healing when possible.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I view the diagnoses in the DSM as groups of symptoms brought on by trauma- trauma meaning an emotional response to an event. It is my hope that we will find better ways of hearing each other describe our experiences so we can apply what we have learned from the fields of the bio-psycho-social for the very best health of the individual. A quote taken from the Instinctual Trauma Response™ method, “the question we ask is not what is wrong with you, but what happened to you.” The goal in my mind is not to put people in the boxes of diagnoses but to get a full understanding of their experience to be more attune to how to give them the best support.
