I believe that resiliency is in each of us. You may have tried multiple ways to create change for yourself and found it difficulty to break out of unhealthy patterns. These feelings may be affecting your work, relationships, or health. I have worked with many individuals and couples who struggle with creating change long term. Whether you've tried therapy before or this is your first time, deciding to step outside your comfort zone and try something different is the first step to a more fulfilling life.

My therapeutic approach uses curiosity through conversation, art , play, or yoga to develop insight.
[Offering Secure Video Options] Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” These words, written by Pema Chödrön, capture the nature of the therapeutic relationship. Our work will look like joining together as we honor your story and compassionately notice the places in your heart that feel broken and are hurting. The choice to show up in this way is both hard and brave; at times, it will feel messy, scary, and confusing.

I often incorporate art and media into therapy.
I get it... you are holding everything and everybody together. You are the super friend that everyone calls when their life is falling apart. They love you because you are at the top of your game and on most days, you have it ALL together. ​On the other hand...there are those days when you are falling apart and you don't have anyone strong enough to support you as you piece yourself back together. You try to reach out and talk to your friends but their best advice is, "I know you will figure it out." You need somebody to listen, support and encourage you too. Every Strong Friend needs a Strong Therapist! ​

I am both an art therapist and licensed professional counselor in private practice in Washington, DC. I teach courses to graduate students in art therapy and counseling. Although I specialize in helping both children and adults with issues of trauma, family, and relationship, people bring a wide range of concerns from personal growth to serious mental illness. Before entering private practice, I directed an activities therapy department in an army medical center where military members and their families were hospitalized for personality and mental disorders. At this facility, I also worked with children and adolescents on a medical ward.

Taking the first steps toward change can be hard and I want to team with you every step of the way. I believe each person has the innate capacity to heal, and that a trusting relationship with a therapist can be a support in that journey. Therapy should be a collaborative process, where you feel comfortable asking questions and can build clarity as you work toward your goals. In my practice, I strive to provide a space where you feel truly seen and can share openly. I tend to weave self compassion, mindfulness, and art creation into therapy, as ways to cultivate emotional resilience and deepen self discovery.

As an Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor I work with teens, children, and adults.
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.
