My clients are most often dealing with communication concerns, issues of intimacy and complications related to life changes. When traumatic events impact their daily lives, they may seek assistance. Occasionally couples and families experiencing stress in their relationships may need an objective listener and guide to help them figure out how to reestablish balance. With the many demands of life and work, we work together to find pleasure in their families and for parents to reinstate parental authority within the family structure.

As a PhD in Art Therapy and Board Certified Art Therapist, I infuse art therapy into my work with my clients only if it appears they would benefit. I specialize in working with adults dealing with loss, stress and trauma and with couples with communication and intimacy concerns.

In addition to being a clinician, a licensed marriage and family therapist, and a PhD in Art Therapy, I am also a Professor and Full time Faculty at a local graduate program integrating art therapy and psychotherapy.
