About

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.
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.
