Areas of Expertise
Counseling & Psychotherapy
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist(#45502) and a Registered Art Therapist. I typically work with children, teens, and adults from an attachment framework: I help people thrive in relationships. These can be relationships of all kinds (parental, monogamous, polyamorous, etc.) I have also been trained in Advanced Integrative Therapy and have taken both the Basics and the Masters course; this is great work for people who have experienced trauma. I have been using art and it’s therapeutic effects for over 20 years in private and clinical settings (assisting adults, teens, children; autistic children and teens; and children and adults facing traumatic abuse). I am also trained as a 5Rhythms Spaceholder and I am currently a 5Rhythms® Teacher-In-Training, which is a type of movement meditation.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
EFT helps couples learn to share their emotional responses with their partner.This fosters the creation of a secure bond between partners, and helps you begin to unfold the carefully woven tapestry of your dance and begin to see your part, and your partners part in the problem. EFT can help create secure bonds with your partner by creating experiences in the present moment. It is highly researched and quite effective. I use this with all my couples, as it works well!
Myth buster: Art Therapy is not just for kids! It works great for all populations who are wanting a different or unique approach to their therapeutic process. Art Therapy can open you up to explore new and different parts of your psyche and heal in profound ways.
Fees for Services
Insurance & Self-Pay
I am not accepting any insurance plans at this time. However if you have a PPO, I am happy to provide you with a Superbill that you can give to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement. Most of my clients opt out of their insurance benefits for mental health services because Insurance companies are able to track, view, and discuss any progress notes or diagnosis. If you are seeking an extra layer of privacy then self-pay may be the best option to pay for services.
