I join my client’s unique healing journey with integrated holistic approach of art therapy, talk therapy, psychodynamic theory, relational-cultural therapy, client-centered therapy, mindfulness practice, CBT and DBT techniques. Client is the expert of their own journey and I come in with my own experiences, insights, and wisdom in life as well as professional knowledge. I am here to guide you, walk alongside you, and sometimes push you in your healing journey.
I believe every person is an artist in a way, picturing and writing their own stories. In art therapy, there is neither right or wrong ways of making art, nor good or bad artist. I encourage my clients to use art as one of communication methods. Sometimes it’s hard to express oneself in a verbal language and we need some time to understand what’s going on inside us. During the art making process, clients can start to understand themselves, gain new perspectives, gain a sense of mastery and achievement, learn and develop distress tolerance skills, coping skills, organizational skills, and self-soothing skills. In one’s healing journey, art can be used as a safe and strong tool.
