"People often consider art therapy under the following circumstances: For issues such as: depression, anxiety, trauma, bereavement, stress management, and relationship challenges,Life stressors and/or emotional difficulties make it hard to function from day to day,Feeling stuck in unhealthy life patterns,Seeking a greater awareness of self and personal growth,Unexpected changes and life transitions.The therapeutic process is a rewarding yet sometimes challenging experience. It can even be a bit scary; especially, if entering therapy for the first time. My job as a professional art therapist is to help you feel as comfortable and safe as possible so that our work together can provide you with positive results. The first few sessions are about introductions. I will inquire about you, review necessary paperwork and ask you to share what brings you to therapy and any goals you may have."
