We offer individualized talk and art therapy for mental health where we unpack your relationship with food and your body, debunk diet culture myths, and help you finally feel at peace with yourself.
Our therapist, Jenna, is dually trained in traditional talk and art therapy methods and is available to provide either service individually, or an integrated approach using both creative and traditional methods.
Jenna believes in the power of equal parts change and acceptance in the therapeutic process and utilizes an empathy-based, person centered approach while simultaneously assisting clients with the identification and practice of change techniques to address unhelpful behavior.
She practices from a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and psychodynamic framework, holding the balance of validation and skills training while focusing on emotional underpinnings and insight development.
Her approach to a therapeutic relationship is a collaborative process involving discovery and exploration in which the therapist acts not as a leader or pilot, but as a supportive companion walking alongside her clients throughout their individual journeys.
Art making has long been used to make sense of internal and external worlds. When words can feel threatening, heavy, or unidentifiable, images can often provide safety, shelter, and exploration.
Art therapy is the incorporation of art making methods in the therapeutic process to aid in self expression, self discovery, and development of self-awareness.
Art therapy serves a variety of functions, including safe externalization and communication of difficult feeling, exploration through the creation process, and a means of coping with emotional distress.
As an art therapist, Jenna believes in the power of the process and the product, guiding clients through the art making process using an array of materials and methods, then facilitating exploration of artwork to aid in identifying meaning and healing.
