Announcement icon I am set up to see clients on VSee & FaceTime (both HIPAA compliant). I will offer lowered fee to artists, actors, or servers out of work.
Looking to create the life you want and clear out the barriers to contentment? Have you been talking to therapists over the years with little change? Or have the feeling that your words are covering over rather than opening up? I work with adults from an expressive point of view. My focus is on helping you to find a sense of order and meaning from inner chaos. Together we will explore what has gone on in your life, where you want to go, and what is keeping you from doing this with ease. I welcome the opportunity to accompany you, support, and respectfully witness your process.
I work with individuals from diverse backgrounds, with issues of trauma, depression, anxiety, creative blocks, acculturation, and chronic illness. I believe in the past informing the present and using your strengths to create a future of your own choice. Allyship is impossible to claim for oneself; I can only show you over time my role as collaborator.
My training is in art therapy, developmental psychology, and psychoanalysis, and sociology. Creativity is not a rare talent: It is a resource we all use daily to solve problems and move forward through life. Reignite your creative strengths in therapy. I work at the intersection of emotions, ideas, images, and, words. Call or email for an initial session.
