As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, my professional philosophy is a person-centered, strength-based approach in counseling. In my clinical practice, I offer sacred creative space to explore your life challenges and grow.
Expressive Arts Therapy also known as a multimodal art therapy, Expressive Therapy uses creativity, creative expression approach to therapy. As an Expressive Arts Therapist, I may incorporate creative writing/poetry, psychodrama/drama/movement, art-making, bibliotherapy, and music within our sessions to encourage the in-depth self-exploration and awareness of your therapeutic process. A person is not required to have "artistic" skills to incorporate the benefits of expressive arts therapy.
