“Peace comes from within.” Buddha

Most of us go through times of deep struggle in our lives. Sometimes it stems from childhood trauma that continues to affect our ways of thinking and being, and other times we are blindsided by a sudden loss, death, or change. As we struggle, we lose our grounding and our sense of inner peace and safety. If you are in the middle of this struggle for whatever reason, I am here to help. I know that when you come to therapy you are having the strength and courage to open up your inner world and am honored to join you on your journey towards peace and healing.

In the room, I offer art making as a tool to discover aspects of yourself. When you create art about your painful experiences, memories, or struggles, it allows that pain to live on the paper instead of rooted in your sense of self and life story. In addition, it allows you to step away from your core problems and view them from a different perspective. Making art in therapy might sound a little scary, but remember this isn’t art anyone else will see and you do NOT need to be “good” at art to benefit from this meaningful process.

I understand, from personal experience, the ways that past trauma can become deeply rooted into the core of who we are. When trauma takes root, it is very easy to get sucked into negative and anxious thoughts that then inform our beliefs about ourselves, our ability to foster self-love, and ultimately our happiness. I am proud of you for taking this first step, for seeking help. This moment is the beginning of a journey towards being at peace with the painful things you have experienced and creating a life you love living.

When I’m not getting to know my clients in therapy, I’m busy trying new things and finding the joy in life. I love the outdoors, especially sunshine-y days, and spending them with my lovable German shepherd Honey. You can also find me building canvases and painting, reading a good book, or trying a new recipe out in the kitchen. Because I have been on a journey to find healing, I strongly believe in the power that this collaborative relationship and process can hold. I believe because it has helped me heal and I hope you can join me on your own journey today. If you would like to talk more, please call me at 512/201-4501, ext. 194.
