About

Living a successful creative life is possible. Are you an artist, writer, musician, academic, or an entrepreneur who is struggling to overcome obstacles to fully realizing the life you desire? It could be that you feel stuck in self-criticism, or maybe you have noticed a problematic pattern in your relationships. You may experience symptoms related to an unresolved trauma that you are ready to release, or you may feel anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed and wonder if you will ever feel better. As a highly creative and highly sensitive person, your needs will best be met by a therapist who is fluent in the language of the imagination.
My understanding of the creative mind comes from 20 years of experience as a fine art and entertainment professional and multidisciplinary doctoral-level training in integrative psychotherapy. I offer a caring and innovative depth psychological approach to traditional talk therapy and dreamwork, somatic experiencing, and trauma treatment via EMDR and TRM.
The foundation of creative living is a process of coming into relationship with yourself, your work, and others. By committing to psychotherapy, you are making an investment in yourself. If now is the time to begin, reach out today and I will look forward to warmly welcoming you with both practical coping strategies and an appreciation for your unique gifts.
