I offer a free half-hour exploratory session where we can talk about what you’d like to get out of therapy, answer any questions you might have, and see if you think we would be a good “fit.” We can also do this over the phone, if you prefer. Please call or email me to set up an appointment for this initial meeting.
During our ongoing work together, each session will be different, shaped by what your needs are, and what you come in with on that day.
As an expressive arts therapist, I work in a somatic / holistic way, helping you tune into and listen to your body / self, often through guided meditation, heeding the messages you find within and letting what’s there emerge, uncovering possibilities for transformation on all levels, including the physical.
Although there is no regular structure, here is an example of what a private session might look like:
Checking in with where you’re at now
Grounding in the body, settling quietly into yourself (perhaps through guided meditation)
Transitioning into the expressive arts, engaging the senses and imagination, finding alternate ways of seeing and experiencing
Exploring what emerged in the arts experience, and harvesting its riches
Closing the arts session
Transitioning gently to the outside world, and accepting “homework,” if desired
