I provide my clients with a compassionate, person-centered and humanistic approach in order to address issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, transitions and environmental stressors. I attempt to meet every person where they are and allow them to move through therapy at their own pace. As a practicing Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (L-CAT) and Board Certified, Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC), I truly believe in the power of art therapy and the creative process in alleviation of mental health issues.

In my practice, I provide both traditional talk psychotherapy and art therapy. Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes art making as a primary mode of expression, exploration and catharsis. In both modalities, I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for my clients.

When processing difficult emotions and experiences, verbal expression can often be a challenge. Art making is a natural form of expression and allows for unconscious emotions and thoughts to materialize. This process creates tangible art forms which allow for reflection and self-discovery without being overwhelming or distressing.
