- Joseph Campbell
I truly believe it is a privilege to be able to learn more about ourselves and what makes us tick, but I understand that not everybody feels that way. For some, internal searching only produces more self-hatred. If that describes where you’re at, I hope you will allow me to walk alongside you on your journey. As a gentle, attuned therapist, we will work together to slowly explore your internal landscape without judging it, and we will find ways to safely feel and communicate what you hold inside.
I started my career in religious publishing, where I worked on books that helped people think through important issues in their lives. I went on to receive a master of arts degree in systematic and historical theology, as I learned to think through some of the important spiritual issues that had shaped my own life.
During this time, I discovered the healing potential of creative, emotional expression, learning to feel through important emotional and spiritual issues. Instead of being content to help others from behind the books I edited, I decided I wanted a more direct connection to others who are looking for health and healing, so I pursued a master of science degree in art therapy with a specialization in counseling.
I am now a licensed professional counselor (LPC-AT) and a board-certified, registered art therapist (ATR-BC). When I'm not working, I continue to enjoy reading (memoirs and nonfiction) and making expressive art, and I also love any reason to photograph nature and life's experiences.
