Human beings are interconnected and we rely on healthy and mutually benefiting connections to grow and be well. The connection formed in therapy is unique and is the basis for change, allowing clients to heal, learn and grow. My job as a therapist is to provide this unique incubating space where growth can occur – to provide perspective, new ideas and strategies that may not otherwise be evident.
Although popular images of psychotherapy in main stream media have, in some ways, helped to normalize psychotherapy they have also propagated myths about the process. There remains a sense of mystery and associated stigma attached to going to see a therapist.
The idea of talking to a stranger about your most intimate thoughts and experiences can seem strange to say the least! I recognize how hard the first session can be and it is my hope that you will quickly feel at ease. Together we can come up with a plan for your health and wellbeing.
My knowledge and training in play and expressive art therapies allows me to connect with adults in ways that more traditional talk therapy does not. The arts allow us to tap into parts of our brain not accessible when strictly relying on language and we, therefore, process experiences in a more whole brain/whole body way.
