Art Therapy: combining professional psychotherapy with the creative process.

The Philosophy behind Art Therapy and My Practice

I believe in a client-centered approach to therapy, based on each client's individual needs and characteristics.

I am committed to providing a therapeutic environment that is safe, non-judgmental, compassionate, and supportive.

All sessions are confidential. There are a small number of exceptions to the confidentiality policy, such as life or death situations, concern for self-harm or harm to others, court mandates, etc. Confidentiality will be discussed further in the initial session.

Artwork created in therapy sessions is also confidential. It belongs to you, and can be stored safely in a locked location or taken home by you at any time.

The use of art as a means of communication is common to all cultures, and can be considered a “visual voice” that is available to everyone.
