I look forward to helping you through compassion, acceptance, and non-judgmental support. I can help you experience peace, balance and harmony using Art Therapy and /or Internal Family Systems Therapy. Both therapeutic approaches are an effective way to access empowerment, self-confidence, decision making ability, relieve undesirable behavior/thoughts, and engage both sides of the brain so that you are fully present. It increases awareness of self and others and helps you experience success. I can help you shift and rebuild the way you think about the various aspects of your personality, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

I enjoy working with individuals and watch them become the person they are meant to be, with a strong sense of self and experiencing good contact with others in their world in general. I help individuals develop an increased sense of their compassionate self by using Internal Family Systems.

You have made the difficult first step in making changes in your life by deciding to find a therapist that is a good fit for you. I encourage you to call me so that we can discuss your needs, my practice, and whether or not it is right for you.
