Licensed Professional Counselor, Associate
As an expressive art therapy counselor, I am able to offer a quiet, serene, and peaceful interactive environment that will allow you to explore your life and improve the quality of your life. You need not have any experience. We will work together to provide you with tools to enhance your journey through life. I work with children, young adults, teens, women, and a limited number of families. The atmosphere of our building lends itself to positivity, as well as creativity, which is essential to a fuller life experience. I use narrative, art, music, and movement strategies depending on the client's needs and desires.
Expressive arts enhance the communication between a client and counselor. Some days a person may feel like scribbling to relieve the soul of negativity, and other days s/he may feel like painting an abstract to encourage the positivity in growth. Soft music and aromatherapy complete the experience.
I have 30+ years of experience teaching all grade levels from pre-K through the university area. As an art therapy counselor, I bring to the practice years of bicultural/bilingual experience and understanding. What makes us different makes us unique and therein lies our goal - understanding this uniqueness.
