About

You’re tired of feeling like a failure when it comes to your life and you’re ready to nourish yourself. I know this might be hard to believe, but the truth is, our bodies are so wise. I am here to guide you through possibly the most terrifying thing you will ever do, learning to listen to your body and process its experience. I specialize in working with teens and young adults who have experienced childhood or recent sexual trauma. Talk therapy is great, learning to express emotions through art-making and somatic body movement is better. With me, you can do both.
I utilize body-based and arts-based processing tools that can ultimately break the cycle of feeling shame and guilt. My office is an intersectional feminist space where we’ll explore society’s role in shaping your thoughts and feelings through trauma-informed art therapy and EMDR techniques.
You will develop a deep understanding of cultural and familiar patterns that influence your relationship with others, yourself, and your body. If you’re ready to dive deep and honor your whole self, call me for a free 15-minute consultation.
