Expressive Arts Therapist
I work daytime hours primarily and offer long term therapy and blocks of therapy (10 sessions on a particular issue). My practice includes individual therapy as well as work with dyads – couples and parent-child/children. I follow intersubjectivity theory which means the dynamic between the therapist and client is critical to the work I do. My experience is in dealing with clients who experience–anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship problems, parenting issues, adoption, attachment and/or identity issues and a variety of emotional stress. My background in rehabilitation and hospitals helps when clients are dealing with the medical system, diagnoses of loved ones or themselves. I have a special interest in work regarding death and dying.
