About

How many times have you said “If I could just get past this one issue in my life, things will start to get better” and then before you know it you are right back in the same place all over again? It seems like no matter how hard you try, things never seem to improve in your life and you can’t quite understand why. Being human, we all wind up feeling stuck at one point or another in our lives. So the question is what do I have to do differently in order to manifest the life I always longed to live? Perhaps the answer lies within yourself and you just need to believe in yourself enough to discover who you really are.
Therapy is an invitation to heal & to transform. To become more than we are today & to continue to grow into who we are yet to be. Invite yourself across the metaphorical walk of fire & come out the other side transformed & stronger than you used to be. A hero’s journey leads us to fight for who we are & come out the other end unafraid of what we discover.
I specialize in expressive arts therapy, trauma-informed approaches, mindfulness work, and somatic resourcing techniques to reawaken the connections to the mind, body, and spirit. I approach therapy through a social justice lens that empowers my clients to find their own voices and identities.
