I am passionate about working with young people and members of the LGBTQ+ community. As a former educator, I have extensive experience working with youth, and specialize in issues related to adolescence, young adulthood, coming out, queer identities, perfectionism, self-image, and learning disabilities. I am well-versed in integrated therapeutic practices which involve connecting current challenges with personal history and combining cognitive therapy with meditation and mindfulness training. Also, the handsome fella in the pic is Hud, our rescue pup. He's generally happier than he looks in the picture, I promise.
I am of the mindset that therapy integrates the mind and body: the cognitive and the somatic. I also believe that with compassion and curiosity clients can both honor and understand their coping mechanisms. I draw from a variety of techniques, including meditation and mindfulness practices.
As a practicing artist and former educator, I believe in the power of exploring our creative impulses and expressions to gain insight into our subconscious expressions.
