What’s going on
People always wonder what goes on behind closed doors.
It’s human nature—makes us want to put an ear to the door and hope we can overhear something.
What goes on behind closed doors in a therapy session is even juicier. And maybe even a bit scary because, for many, it’s the unknown.
Let me open the door for you.
My hope is that, from the minute you step foot in my space, you feel your body start to relax.
I’ve certainly pulled out all the stops: soothing colors, soft furniture, soft ambient sound, natural light. But best of all, I provide a peaceful, non-judgmental attitude.
My goal is to listen to you and not only hear what you’re saying, but also hear what you’re leaving out. Okay, that’s really only one of my goals.
My overall goal is to help you get where you want to go: out of pain and onto someplace-better-than-here.
How we get there is up to you.
You drive the process. I just provide the roadmap.
Sometimes we’ll take detours, but I’ll do my best to keep us always headed in the right direction. And with hope, we may even have a little fun along the way.
Fun in therapy? What?
Yup, I believe humor has a place in therapy.
It’s a tool to keep us from taking ourselves too seriously.
Laughter is a guaranteed way to reduce stress, and it’s a fantastic way to put things in perspective. Plus it makes us feel better.
And isn’t that why you’re here? For sure it’s why I’m here. To help people feel better.
I had a life before this.
I used to be in advertising. Loved it. Until the clients started telling me what to do. So I decided to find a job where I could tell clients what to do. See, there’s that humor thing!
I don’t actually tell anyone what to do, I just help you get where you want to go – maybe even create the life you want.
Just so you know
I went to school for it and everything. I got a master’s degree in Counseling and Education with a concentration in Art Therapy from the University of Louisville. With honors even.
Before that, well, way before that, I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from Art Center College of Design.
Now I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and Board Certified, Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC).
Lots of good letters I can put after my name. Looks very official on a business card. Which I’d be happy to give you, once you jump in and click the button below.
