Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Using experiential modalities such as art therapy, play therapy, sand play and role play, I have found self-awareness and positive change more accessible to people. While these modalities are an obvious choice for children and teens, they also work well with adults who might otherwise get 'stuck' in traditional talk therapies. I am eclectic in theory and tend to use theories that support the uniqueness and inherent health of individuals and families. Specializing in children, adolescents and families, I often work with parenting and couple's issues that impact the family as a whole. I also work with victims of crime, issues of loss/grief, I facilitate a children's bereavement group at a local hospital and I'm available for art therapy consultation and supervision. In the Fall, 2002, I will be starting 'EXPRESS YOURSELF: art therapy groups for pre/adolescent girls and for women, teaching the use of art process for personal development.

Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
