I am a registered psychotherapist and a board-certified art therapist in private practice in Longmont, CO and in Boulder, CO at the Boulder Art Therapy Collective. I work with children, teens and adults facing the challenges of depression, trauma, relationship, communication and anger issues, body image, addictions, grief, anxiety, “stuckness,” and life transitions. I’m also a sociologist, so I’m interested in how your environment and the people around you– your friends and family–affect you.
I work with clients using both verbal psychotherapy and non-verbal methods (art therapy, photography, and writing). Clients I have worked with have found art-making, such as collage, painting, drawing, poetry, as well as photography, productive methods to reduce stress, promote self-awareness, and gain insights about themselves. In terms of psychotherapy I use an eclectic approach, combining psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness elements. I also have a deep interest in sharing an existentialist perspective, so clients will explore how they make meaning in their lives, and how they may do so in the future in a way that is consistent with their core values.
I approach the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, and we will decide together what forms of expression feel right to you. I’m happy you have taken this first step to see how you might benefit from therapy.
Please call or email me for a free consultation and for us to determine whether we’re a good fit to work together.
