I work with a wide range of clients (children, adolescents and adults) with a range of issues: PTSD, trauma, bereavement, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and addictions.
My art therapy practice is based on an eclectic theoretical orientation, influenced by psychoanalytical theories of development, with a strong foundation in humanism, and informed by postmodern, multi-cultural, feminist approaches.
My practice is an eclectic approach to art therapy based on diversity, flexibility, and innovation. My eclectic approach uses art therapy to drive change; where the artwork becomes a mirror of the client’s inner world and transforms inner tension to envision new possibilities. Exploring different aspects of the artwork can help a client see the world in different perspectives and start exploring different ways of being. The artwork facilitates healing.
Establishing safety, acceptance, and trust are essential.
I practice within a feminist, multi-cultural perspective examining the dysfunctional and harmful reinforcement of gender roles and inequalities in the political, economic, and social arenas.
