As an Art Therapist, I believe all humans are innately creative. It is my job to find out how you are creative in your own life, and to use that in helping you understanding yourself and processing your experiences. Visual art, music, gardening, cooking, working on cars; any and all of these can be the creative outlet to lead you to a happier you. Allow me to help you express and process life through your personal creative outlet to fulfillment in who you are.
I have struggled with my own Depression, and know how difficult it can be to overcome. I understand the many different symptoms which make it up, and how it manifests a little different in each person. Through small achievable goals and examination of the root of beliefs and symptoms we can overcome Depression, even when it feels insurmountable. Satisfaction, fulfillment, and appreciation of your life are possible. Allow me to accompany you on your journey to freedom from Depression.
Whether you find yourself the caregiver of a loved one with a diagnosis or you are a parent who finds themselves lost and frustrated with the needs of your children, I can help. When one is a caregiver, they tend put all ahead of their own needs. This whittles down ones reserves, until they feel as though they are drowning in the ever growing responsibilities and emotions surrounded by providing that care. I can help process these emotions and introduce self-care to create fulfillment.
Since 2005, I have provided support for those suffering from cancer and their loved ones. I know how people so often do not understand, say the wrong thing, or cannot talk about it at all. I know the physical symptoms of treatment are awful, the anxiety surrounding every scan is unbearable, and cancer can invade every aspect of your life. Each person in the challenging journey of facing cancer has an individual experience, one which I hope to make more manageable.
