About

Finding the right therapist can be time-consuming, emotionally exhausting and expensive. For this reason, I offer a complimentary full-length introductory session. I have experience with youth and adults navigating struggles with self-esteem, depression, early childhood or other trauma, disordered eating, relationship issues, anxiety, grief and loss, life transition, and existential anxiety. Clients say they appreciate my precision, as well as my gentle but directive approach to therapy. Mindfulness and meditation inform my practice and I am available, if you wish, to support you to explore this part of yourself.
My main training is in Intermodal Expressive Arts Therapy, which means that visual arts, theatre, music, poetry, and/or movement work can be part of your therapeutic process if you wish. No artistic experience or expertise is required. We won't always make art together; sometimes you just need to talk.
My approach is very relational and here-and-now. I won't pathologize you or give advice. I believe deeply in a collaborative approach to healing. We may use the arts, or other here-and-now experiential processes to explore what's happening, and how it may connect to your larger life. We'll stay curious together, and let things unfold. It's your space.
