Do you ever find yourself asking “is there more?” or question your feelings of fulfillment? I am committed to helping you find the strength and resilience to persevere. It is incredibly courageous to make the decision to explore yourself in the pursuit of understanding your story. In therapy, you will have opportunities to explore what is working and what is not, unveil parts of yourself that may be challenging to sit with, and learn to embrace them in a way that allows you to be your most authentic and best self. As an art therapist, the creative process may provide a way to communicate when word aren't enough.

Do you ever feel like you’re alone in your emotional challenges? Managing our mental health is something we should never have to do alone. My life’s journey has led me to my passions in both the mental health and entertainment industries, allowing me to advocate for mental health resources internationally and provide therapy. I guide people to feel their power which does not lie in an ideal of perfection, but rather to find ourselves in a space where we can begin to meet ourselves where we are to heal with self-compassion. With gratitude, I am a guide to assist individuals with depression, anxiety, and PTSD, as well as couples.

You’ve always managed to maintain control but life just became overwhelming and your usual coping techniques aren’t working. Not knowing what else to do, you find yourself doing more of the same. When working long hours does nothing to soothe your fear that you are an imposter, you work more. When one glass of wine fails to take the edge off your work stress, your pour yourself another. Now, others are starting to notice you don't have your act perfectly together and your frustration with yourself has built itself into a litany of self-criticism.

We all have unique stories. Our pasts form us into who we are today, and oftentimes what once worked for us, no longer does. Therapy can help us to gain the insight to understand our stories, but more importantly, help us to choose new ways of living and engaging with ourselves, others, and the world. In the context of a supportive relationship, we will work together to move towards a life where you can experience more meaning and freedom.
