Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe healing occurs in therapy by the child, adolescent or adult in therapy feeling seen, safe, respected, and honored, and secondly through the union of the symbolic and the cognitive. My psychodynamic background includes expertise in the area of art and sandplay therapies, and in the area of cognitive behavioral therapy. Art therapy and sandplay allow for the symbolic expression of events, thought, and feelings that are too deep or complex for words and allows the client to free blocked energy and discover a new pathway of resolution. Cognitive behavioral techniques facilitate a way to work intellectually with the emergent symbolic material and with the way we filter and respond to the external world. In conjunction with one another it provides powerful tools for problem resolution and self knowledge.
