About

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and registered Art Therapist. I use an eclectic approach to therapy that is highly individualized to you, your goals, your strengths, and the challenges you face in daily life. More specifically, I am skilled at weaving creative art techniques with the tenets of polyvagal theory and other relational neurosciences, and regularly draw in session upon a wide range of practices (including attachment-based, mindfulness, self-compassion, CBT, somatic & beyond). I love working with children, teens, families, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, relational difficulties, and trauma.
In our collaborative work together, I assist clients in exploring any barriers to achieving balance and happiness in their daily lives, and identifying obstacles to satisfying relationships. Sessions provide a climate of acceptance and respect, and a safe place to break out of old patterns, try new things and practice more mindful ways of living.
Within my practice, I have a special commitment to helping children and youth, and their parents. Years of experience working in the educational system provided me with opportunities to work with children from preschool to high school. I have extensive experience treating children on the Autism spectrum, and providing support to their families.
