My focus is on the arts and creativity. I believe that the arts (drawing, music, dance, etc.) are the language of our deepest human connection. We all thrive with connection. The arts help us tap into the healing that is within all of us.
You are an artist. You are a poet. You are a singer. You are a dancer. You are creative.
Many people have "creativity wounds."
A time someone; a teacher, a parent, told you you're not good enough and it stuck.
You're still telling yourself that same old story of shame...
Unfortunately, it's stopping your creative potential. It's holding you back from speaking out or speaking up because of a belief that it might suck...
There are so many benefits to engaging in Arts Exploration!
improve self-worth and self-acceptance
develop focus and expression
increase life satisfaction
work through anxiety and grief
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor in North Carolina
and a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist through the
International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (IEATA).
I've been a licensed counselor for 10 years, working with a variety of people/families in multiple settings. I specialize in applying arts exploration toward valued living and have helped clients with stress/anxiety, grief/depression, communication/relationships as well as appreciating and building on their unique strengths while facing fears and challenges. I'll be your cheerleader but I will also call you out on patterns that are getting in the way of your best self.
I currently see adults online in North Carolina using HIPAA compliant secure video chat and offer events in the Asheville area.
