Therapy can help us to connect with ourselves and others, find meaning, joy, love, acceptance, playfulness and peace of mind. If you are recovering from trauma, if you are stuck or struggling, therapy can create a safe space to work through painful and difficult emotions and experiences in order to live better and feel better. I value creativity, compassion and collaboration. My approach is drawn from attachment theory, narrative therapy, trauma-informed somatic therapies, mindful self-compassion and relational therapy.

The healing process is unique to each person. While many go through similar events, not everyone experiences them in the same way. I view my clients through a holistic lens to develop a collaborative, therapeutic relationship. I help my clients develop healthy ways to manage distress, find ways to move out of being stuck, develop new insight for unresolved issues, and increase overall wellbeing. My primary focus is working with clients who have experienced trauma. Because the nature of trauma is complex, I use an integrative, person-centered approach to meet my clients' needs at their pace and readiness.

To me therapy (through talk or art) is a creative process where we work to together to help you achieve your goals, navigate transitions, address difficult issues, and heal from past experiences that have left you feeling stuck. My work is grounded in self-compassion (self-kindness, shared humanity, and mindfulness), narrative therapy, and art-based theories.
