Life is a gift to be enjoyed. When conditions are good we thrive. When difficult events occur, or when current coping methods no longer work, it may become a struggle to maintain a healthy and meaningful life. While we can’t change difficult situations, we can work together to increase insight and explore possibilities and solutions. My practice is client-centered and strengths-based, and will use the theory or technique that is best suited to you and your situation.

**A word about the therapeutic use of art: Sometimes people are unable to fully express themselves through words alone, or feel that all of the words have been said. The expressive arts combine the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing and other creative processes to foster deep personal growth and community development.
