I enjoy working with clients who are willing to engage in therapy from a creative perspective with the goal of exploring the mind body connections, and the interplay between feelings and behavior. It has been gratifying to work with clients who are attuned to the relational perspective of psychotherapy. I am passionate about working with children, adolescents and their caregivers, helping them adjust to transitions, stressors, and pressures of functioning at home, school and work. I find satisfaction from utilizing my teaching experiences and creative outlook to bring a flexible perspective to problem solving at all levels.
I draw from cognitive behavioral modalities, psycho-dynamic theories and attachment work, as well as expressive arts and experiential mindfulness techniques. These models all serve to help each person develop tools to navigate obstacles that block the path toward healthy growth.
I am an LCSW-C clinical therapist. In addition, I received an MA in Dance from American University. As a therapist and former teacher, I have combined my somatic knowledge, teaching strategies and understanding of creative processes into an integrative practice. These skills allow me to co-construct and uniquely tailor each therapeutic relationship.
