Psychotherapeutic Approach

I utilize an integrative psychotherapy and liberation psychology approach to our work.  Honoring the interconnection of mind, body, and spirit facilitates deeper and more lasting transformations.

I also find drama therapy to be a highly effective complement to traditional talk therapy. The North American Drama Therapy Association defines drama therapy as “the intentional use of drama and/or theater processes to achieve therapeutic goals.” As an embodied approach, the therapeutic results tend to be more integrated and longer lasting than solely intellectual insights.

I guide clients in working through issues such as:

  • AnxietyConstructively utilizing this energy in healthy and productive ways
  • DepressionCreativity-building that allows for more spaciousness in your life
