Recreating Dawn ~ Trauma Recovery through Art Therapy & Counseling
Hi, Joy here! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Art Therapist based out of Cleveland, Ohio. I love what I do. I get to help humans cope with life's challenges, like grief, loss, stress, relationship problems, and traumatic events.
Sometimes, we even have fun doing it!
With me, clients know they have a warm and straight-forward therapist, who skillfully supports and challenges them towards new perspectives. I will guide you on your journey to overcome "stuck-ness" and pain with humor, a little dose of reality, plus a whole lot of creativity. I practice non-judgemental Person-Centered approaches with a dash of CBT, Existential therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Trauma-Informed Brain-based Neuroscience to back it up.
No stranger to breathtaking surprises or suffering, I connect with anyone on the arduous journey of self-exploration, healing, and, ultimately, hope.
