I believe, expressive psychotherapy engages the wholesome Mind-Body-Soul agency. Creativity and expression are essential requirements for children’s development and adolescents’ growth, so expressive psychotherapy approach is perfectly suitable for children as well.
I uniquely customize talk therapy, breathing techniques, guided imagery, gentle movement/dance, play therapy, creative writing, collage making, and reflection, all to your specific needs in order to resolve the root causes of behavioral patterns and emotional conflicts.
