Commitment to Care
As a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, I am committed to supporting you as you work towards discovering your inner strength and feeling inspired every day. As a mental health therapist, I work with individuals to assist them with medical and mental health challenges, as well as individuals seeking emotional, creative, and spiritual growth. It is my goal to honor your values and beliefs, and create an environment where you feel safe to share your story, embrace imperfections, and reclaim dreams. There are times for all of us when life becomes overwhelming, hope is lost, and it feels impossible to make connections. In these moments we can all use more support. Therapy can be the first step to saying yes to yourself, and making yourself a priority. It is my hope to help you in making healthy decision, to grow as an individual, and to live your best life. Within every experience there is a gift, an opportunity to blossom, to be your best self. As partners we will work towards nurturing the strength, confidence, and skills you desire to reach your goals.
