One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all."
One is Evil. It is anger, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, forgiveness, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied,
"The one you feed."
I strive to create a safe comfortable space to support my clients to work through their struggles, emotions and anguish. I exhibit a compassionate and non-judgemental mode of relating inconjuntion with an empathic, change-oriented philosophy. In session I offer art psychotherapy as well as verbal-talk therapy. My therapeutic interventions tend to oscillate between the two modalities based on what each client needs.
Art Psychotherapy is a non-traditional form of therapy that allows a person to use creative expression to gain insight into their problems and establish solutions. The art making process becomes a vehicle to promote self-awareness, manage emotions and see ourselves from a distance.
Art psychotherapy is not based on having art skills, an ability draw or to make something that is aesthically pleasing. Making art in therapy gives a voice to thoughts and feelings we often find hard to put to words.
