Art therapy evaluations and treatment
Practice Description: I believe that children, adolescents, adults as well as couples and families heal and recover from traumas and other life difficulties through many different ways. Because of this, I utilize methods of working with each person that best reaches his or her needs. Art therapy modalities, such as drawing, sculpting, writing, poetry and music as well as traditional talking are all called into use when appropriate. For children, play and sand therapy are very helpful and viable options and I add them with great regularity to help a child express non-verbally that which they cannot "say" with words.

I know, from over 30 years of working with children, adolescents and adults in pain, that many of us develop ways of coping that worked for us way back when, to help us through very difficult times. Now the work as an adolescent or adult is to figure what still works and what needs to be let go of and replaced with healthier and more effective ways of living. I also help mature clients to look at how they are repeating familial and individual patterns that may not serve them well in the present.
