Announcement icon During the Covid-19 health crisis and while social distancing guidelines are in effect, I will exclusively be offering telehealth services.
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 relational neuroscience, and regularly draw upon a wide range of practices and interventions (from mindfulness, to CBT, to traditional talk therapy, to more body-based & beyond). I love working with children, teens, families and parents, especially mothers struggling with daily stresses.
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.
