My approach  to art therapy is always person centered where I will   draw from a wide range of theoretical approaches and traditions  tailored to meed the needs of the individual.
 
I    specialize in short term work that combined mindfulness meditation and art therapy  processes. 
I  encourages  individuals  to learn skills in the therapy room that can be used outside of sessions.. I have found that this can give  individuals   a  sense of empowerment and confidence than will support them in their lives and add to their  resiliency health and well being. (See mindfulness page)
