Have you been experiencing the pain of sorrow or loneliness? Perhaps you are functioning well, but feel the tears on the inside. Sometimes worries seem like they will never stop. I have worked successfully with adults, teens and children for the last 25 years, helping restore hope and optimism. You can heal your relationships, watch your children blossom and find family life enriching again.
Art therapy is a holding place for deep feelings, when words, alone, are not enough. Paint has been called 'liquefied feeling'. Some colors are found in crayon, others in drawing. What colors are your emotions? Any emotion you draw or clay can then be noticed, owned, and learned from. I also do sandtray therapy. Children usually play in the sand, whether house or war. Adults resolve longstanding issues. Teens enjoy the non-verbal quality.
I incorporate talk therapy, art therapy, sandtray therapy and play therapy, depending on the needs of each client. I also work with bereavement, divorce issues, and relationships.
