I am a licensed mental health counselor, licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor and nationally registered art therapist.
I work with individuals who are seeking to find ways to get relief from symptoms of mental illness and addictions.
My practice is focused towards individauls who are motivated to make changes in their lives due to these challenges which may be manifesting as anxiety,
depression, somatic issues, eating disorders and
substance abuse, chemical dependency or other forms of compulsive behaviors.
My work as a therapist is indelibly linked to finding ways to support my clients. Together we will work to explore
the places within that have lived in isolation towards the goal of reintegration and a sense of wholeness.
I work with individuals in a combination of ways to support expression and release of old stuck patterns.
It is my belief that the healing process is not about needing to be "fixed" but rather to learn ways to move into acceptance of our humaness. My work as a therapist is about leading clients through exploring the different parts of themselves to gain a deeper understanding of internal conflicts and the patterns that are getting in the way of moving forward.
Head and the Hearth Psychotherapy is the name of my practice as it is the union of our thinking and emotions that allows us find an internal sense of freedom.
is a way to speak for and hold the feelings and thoughts that cannot be expressed through words alone.
In my office,
you will find a hearth that provides a source of calm, warmth and reflection to support you in the healing journey.
