I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families using art and play in therapy and exploring client’s issues from a psychodynamic perspective. Issues addressed in therapy are trauma, anxiety, depression, divorce, and the impact of domestic violence on children. My approach is Humanistic, Client Centered, and Existential, however I also use Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and work with parents/caregivers using The Nurtured Heart Approach to Parenting. I have been in private practice and have worked in community mental health. I am an adjunct professor and periodically teach graduate students in topics around using art and play in therapy. I am interested in self care for therapists and work part time to create balance in my life as an artist.
I see supervision as a collaborative way to develop your skills as a therapist, to explore your relational style in working with clients, and to fulfill your requirements if you are working toward licensure. I value supervision/consultation and have my own consultant even after many years of being in practice. I have supervised graduate student interns in community mental health as well as therapists obtaining hours toward licensure. Supervision is a place to explore your client cases in depth, look at client cases from other perspectives, get ideas for how to go deeper with your client, or work in new ways with them. Supervision is also a place where you get to fully explore the client/therapist relationship in a safe, non-judgmental place.
