When you try psychotherapy,
you will have the opportunity to speak about your problems at a pace that feels safe for you
with someone who will actively listen,
be interested in your ideas about yourself, and will not judge.
You will be able to discuss topics
that you might not feel able to talk about with a friend or family member.
If you have worries they will be taken seriously.
You might start to feel a sense of freedom,
because you will feel understood and heard.
As a psychotherapist
I am not perfect, but I will model accountability and will be sincere in my attempt to repair mistakes and any misunderstandings. This kind of interaction will become a microcosm of real life, and you will learn how to strengthen your sense of self in the relationships that you encounter in your daily life.
As an expressive art therapist
I can provide a safe container where powerful emotions can be expressed. The arts can serve as a bridge between yourself and your inner experience. My view of life as a creative process is always my guide whether we talk or paint or write.
You will feel stronger
and more receptive to your vulnerabilities and your strengths, and better able to make healthy choices in your life. You will learn to be more observant of how you feel and cope. You will learn to be more present to all that is you.
