Change can be difficult -- Allow me to help you succeed on your journey! Throughout my years of experience, I've found great joy and satisfaction in helping children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I work with children treating for phobias, unhappiness, divorce, grief, separation issues, abuse, neglect, poor self-esteem, and problems adjusting to life transitions. I use a combination of play therapy, art therapy, and talk therapy, as appropriate per the child's developmental level.

In every culture and era of humanity, people have all been drawn to say through art "I was here.

I have combined DBT and art therapy for use with eating disorders in order to provide opportunities to practice new skills to replace disordered eating as a coping strategy for difficult emotions.
I specialize in helping people who know what changes need to be made, but who struggle with knowing how to make them: whether it is with food, relationships, self-harm or addictions. My method is primarily skills based: I accept what you bring in, and then we work together toward change. I am experienced with mood, anxiety and thought disorders. I'm passionate about working with eating disorders, body image and LGBTQ+ issues. I work well with adults, adolescents and groups. I strongly believe that developing a solid and collaborative therapeutic relationship is crucial to healing.

I am a trained art therapist and if it feels right for you, may use art to help strike up conversations about your experience.
Who would have ever imagined having to cope with a pandemic? Yet we do and we are. At times old coping skills fall short and feel lost. You might hide your pain, mask with alcohol or a drug, put a smile on and fake it as best as possible. No need to go through that alone. Addiction as well as feeling low or anxious is a confusing world filled with self doubt, grief, loss, shame & guilt; all the emotions we try to hide from. But during these times, the pain could be even greater. You will be treated with the utmost respect & compassion as we work towards a healing path.

With parents from two different continents and a childhood in a third, I am a product of globalization. I am incredibly curious about how we exist and make choices in this increasingly complex world of enmeshed culture and fractured identities. Knowing I wanted to approach therapy in a unique manner, I studied Drama Therapy. With that knowledge base, and previous experience in improvisational theater as well as fine art, my approach veers toward the embodied, the sensory, and the creative. I believe that humor and levity need to be present in therapy to balance the heavy, the dark, and the difficult.

Art Therapy
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in San Jose is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. San Jose Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centers, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled San Jose art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
