"I accept you, I believe in you, and I want you to have the most fulfilling life possible."
We all face challenges and sometimes we feel alone with the weight of the world on our shoulders. Still, it can be hard to reach out for support. I encourage you to take a chance and connect with me or any of the counselors here at King Health Associates. It can make such a big difference to have an ally in your corner, helping you navigate through life and find your true path.
My style of therapy continues to evolve, but some things remain constant. I accept you, I believe in you, and I want you to have the most fulfilling life possible. The way I go about that may vary from person to person, because therapy is not one-size-fits-all. In general, I tend to be nurturing, somewhat silly, gentle and insightful. I give assignments and offer direct suggestions when it seems helpful. I have the training; you are the expert.
Being trained as an Expressive Arts Therapist means we can be really creative in our work together if it suits you. Using art in therapy is totally up to you, and can look all kinds of different ways. The most important thing to know is that it's not about creating pretty art -- it's about expressing feelings. No art experience needed! I'd love to explain this more, so please ask questions if you have any.
Here are some potential side-effects of working with me:
- higher self-esteem
- feeling heard and understood
- increased self-compassion and self-love
- increased tolerance for bad jokes and puns (sorry not sorry)
- a desire to live your best life
- opening up to your creativity
- feeling less alone
- being your authentic self
I would be honored to hear from you and witness your journey. I happily work with individuals ages 10 and older, and welcome couples as well. I use she/her pronouns and identify as bigender.
