About My Clients

As far as anyone can tell, you have everything under control. But on the inside, you feel as if everything is falling apart. You are upset, frustrated, and scared at the changes you see in yourself and the sense of powerlessness the dementia brings. Feeling isolated and overwhelmed is your new normal. How do you even process what is going on, let alone explain it to someone else? You may have even tried traditional talk therapy in the past without success.

My Background and Approach

With Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, we often lose our ability to express ourselves verbally. Words are hard to grasp. It's exhausting trying to keep everything together and embarrassing to admit the tasks and activities that used to come easily, aren't easy or enjoyable anymore. Where do you even start? You want to understand the disease without it dictating your life. You want to quiet the anxiety and reconnect with what gives your life meaning. You're ready to explore the grief that keeps you paralyzed and restore your sense of self and balance. I provide a nonjudgemental lens to reframe your experiences, a companion on this journey to reconnect with and preserve your amazing self. We inherently want to express ourselves creatively – art is a part of us. I guide you in finding that ease and flow in art making, allowing you to connect to yourself while defending against the inaccurate noise of self doubt.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Creativity is for everyone, and art therapy is about using art to heal. So much of what we think, feel and experience is actually stored in the visual nonverbal part of our brain; this can be why it is difficult to verbalize our internal experiences. You need a therapist who is as warm hearted as she is approachable. Who will encourage you to attend to the uncomfortable with curiosity and laughter. I believe that sometimes we need to get lost a bit before we can evolve and find ourselves.
