Therapy For Women
Welcome to Therapy for Women!
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I help women identify their passions, develop their strengths and learn tools to manage anxiety, depression and lower the effects of stress in their lives. Anxiety and depression are rampant today and more and more women are developing chronic illnesses and struggling to identify what they want to do with their lives. Loneliness is on the rise as is the long term effects of trauma. The good news is, you do not have to suffer alone. You do not have to live day-to-day in emotional pain. You deserve to have a life you are excited to wake up to.
As women, single, married, widowed, partnered or divorced, we must learn self-care, how to set healthy boundaries, how to say "No," and when to ask for help. With self-exploration, understanding how past trauma can affect one's life today, the healing process can begin!
I bring a wealth of life experiences both professionally and personally to the work I do with clients. I provide a safe and warm approach to therapy using a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Mind Body approaches.
Whether we use traditional "talk" therapy and/or integrate creative expression, personal therapy can be an adventure rather than a drain. Knowing oneself is an amazing gift to give to yourself. A therapy begins when we first connect over the phone. I will ask you a few basic questions about why you are seeking therapy at this time in your life and what your goals are for therapy. I will explain to you briefly how I work, my fee and the location of my office. If we decide to work together, we will set an appointment date and time. I will email you my intake form and questionnaire for you to fill in and bring to the first session. On the scheduled date, we will meet. I try to make clients feel comfortable to talk about what is going on in your life. I don't "fix" clients; I help guide and support you.
Art therapy is a mental health profession that uses different art mediums to express thoughts and feelings. Images, colors and symbols will trigger feelings quicker and easier than words alone. It is not about how good an artist you are, it is about putting your feelings down on paper or expressed with clay. The process is here and now. It is not about the product. Client and therapist discuss the what it was like to create the art and what came up while creating the art piece. Therapists do not interpret, the ask questions to help clients make sense of their art.
