About

I am an expressive arts therapist working from a person-centered approach. I am inspired by liberation healing and am invested in understanding colonial impacts on mental health. I value the intersectionalities and breadth of human identities, dis/abilities, experience, and creative expressions. I understand and respect how these aspects may contribute to one's mental health and life challenges. My work is centered around relationships​ and using the arts and dialogue as catalysts for personal inquiry, discovery, and growth.
I am known for my dynamic and creative treatment style, delivered with a relational and inclusive approach. I provide a comforting environment ensuring confidentiality is achieved. I use a variety of artistic modalities (poetry, music, visual arts, movement, theatre) to engage and empower individuals’ creative spirit and expressive voice.
I am currently accepting new clients and referrals for virtual therapy and am glad to offer a free 30-minute​ consultation.
