About My Clients

I work with a diverse range of individuals who grapple with feeling stuck, unmotivated, and anxious amidst life's demands. Art therapy offers a gateway to explore these struggles, unburdening through creative expression. My clients need a safe non-judgmental space, met with compassion and active listening, as they aspire to overcome challenges, discover their potential, thrive, and form authentic connections.

My Background and Approach

My background uniquely informs my approach as an art therapist. I've navigated cultural complexities, fostering empathy and understanding. I draw from person-centered, solution-focused, and existential-humanistic frameworks, anchored in unconditional empathy, to create a safe, non-judgmental space. This enables clients ranging from students to parents, young adults to career professionals to explore concerns like anxiety, depression, life transitions, and identity formation. I leverage art as a transformative tool, fostering self-expression and insight. By cultivating an atmosphere of trust, I guide clients toward personal growth, resilience, and authentic self-discovery.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal beliefs and interests profoundly influence my art therapy practice. I firmly believe in the power of creativity to heal and transform. Art serves as a universal language that transcends words, enabling us to communicate the intricate tapestry of our emotions. I am passionate about providing a haven for self-expression, especially for those struggling with feeling stuck, anxious, or disconnected.
