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.

Therapy is a unique experience for each person. It helps you learn yourself, your relationships (past and present), and how you interact with the world. It is a place of self healing and understanding. It is a place to find safety and refuge to manage stress,anger, guilt, anxiety, overwhelming feelings, trauma, interpersonal conflict, and significant life events. I work with youth and adults to help address these issues. I am trained as a psychodynamic therapist, practicing from a relational standpoint. I use several clinical approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, and trauma focused therapy as needed.

I utilize an eclectic approach, but my main treatment modalities are acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, trauma focused -cognitive behavioral therapy and client centered therapy.
The clients I like to focus on are people that have challenges with executive functioning, anxiety and depression. I want to help people to identify the past challenges or traumatic experiences that could be causing disruption in their lives, so that they can address it because awareness of the origin of an issue is half the battle. A lot of the habits that we do are signs and symptoms of adverse experiences that worked in one point of our lives, but now could be problematic. My goal is to provide a safe space for openness and expression to be heard while I guide you to your goal of being healed using a trauma informed approach.
