I have been working as a clinician in the mental health field for seven years, I have learned that out of all the treatment modalities that mindfulness is the most enriching for the entire body. Human beings often forget that we have no control over yesterday and no control over tomorrow, that we can only control what is happening right now. Being more in the moment. I have worked with and helped many people with a multitude of psychiatric issues, I find the brain fascinating, and I also believe that people think that they are alone when they aren't, and I enjoy helping people face those challenges.

I am a creative arts therapist and psychotherapist who specializes in treating adults experiencing depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive behaviors. Through my own experiences and passion for the arts, I was exposed to the therapeutic process of making art. I believe that when we make art, we create a safe distance from emotional responses which provides us time and space for reflection. From art therapy comes a visual connection between thoughts and feelings of the human experience. This allows us to form a sense of self that is healing.

So you’re taking steps to improve your mental health. Good for you! Therapy is not “one size fits all”. I meet my clients where they are at and help them reach their goals in a way that is natural to them. I provide a safe judgement-free (virtual) space where you can get the support you need to improve your life. While my approach to counseling is unique to each client’s needs, I generally incorporate many positive psychology principles. Rather than focusing solely on areas of weakness and unhappiness, I help clients maximize their strengths and recognize areas of joy in their lives.

I am a clinical psychologist with expertise in treating addictions, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, body image issues and difficulties with emotion regulation. I teach skills that increase life satisfaction, happiness, self-confidence, curiosity and gratitude. When life doesn't meet our expectations or painful situations occur, many people become self-critical and fight against emotions such as anger, loneliness, fear or shame. It is this lack of acceptance that increases suffering. Mindfulness and self-compassion involve responding with kindness to our own pain, thereby reducing suffering.

When you're the dependable one- the one everyone looks to, where are you supposed to go? While you certainly know the right answers, even for yourself, putting them into action is much harder. Even more, when you're the balanced one, it can be hard to admit or even realize that you're struggling. That voice you're so used to hearing: the one that says that you're behind, tells you what you "should" be doing, says you're not doing enough- it doesn't have to be there. What would life be like without that pressure? Without that soundtrack you can be more present in your life.

It is a privilege to work with people. When we feel anxious or depressed, it is harder to feel happy and do the things we like to do. The last two years have been difficult for many. I believe my clinical experience and your desire to feel better will make us a good team. The skills I can impart will help you navigate and manage your symptoms, decrease anxiety, depression, and feeling “out of sorts”. Hope and knowing we can manage our own lives is what we all wish for. My specialties are adults, couples, and parents. I also supervise Social Work interns and MSW graduates working toward licensure.

Give yourself credit! The fact that you're seeking a therapist is a sign of inner strength and courage to face, rather than avoid a difficult situation. The heart of successful therapy involves a caring and close relationship with healthy boundaries where anything can be discussed without fear of judgement. Whether you are accustomed to handling your challenges on your own or prefer to bounce things off trusted friends, there are times when we all need a safe place to talk and be heard. I will provide that place for you.

My approach to psychotherapy is focused on increasing self-understanding and changing longstanding patterns in thinking, feeling or relating to others that are no longer working. I view psychotherapy as an open-ended, collaborative relationship aimed at helping individuals look inward to find new solutions, develop healthier patterns and achieve emotional balance. My treatment philosophy is based in the Bio-psycho-social Model, in which a person's problems are understood in the context of their unique biological, psychological, social and environmental influences, and therapeutic approaches and interventions are chosen accordingly.
