I thrive working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief / loss , attachment difficulties, residual effects from trauma, career transitions, relationship challenges, and those affected by Alzheimer’s/Dementia.
My practice as an art therapist and counselor is founded on an eclectic theoretical foundation. I believe the most successful way to achieve personal goals in therapy is by developing a trusting relationship. Taking the time to learn a client’s strengths and aspirations, as well as their personal and family history with curiosity and compassion is imperative. The foundation of my practice is strengths-based - I approach our work together with the understanding that everyone experiences challenges and has many abilities that may be utilized to reduce symptoms, navigate challenges, and improve relationships.

I have experience utilizing trauma-informed therapy with children, adolescents, and young adults in the management of depression, anxiety, grief , life transitions, low self-esteem, and interpersonal conflict.
I believe that every person holds unique life experiences that cumulate to create the story of who they are. These stories provide context to how people express themselves and view the world around them. Within the therapeutic space, I seek to meet clients in a warm, non-judgmental environment, one that is guided by a holistic framework to identify what health and wellness look like for each individual. By incorporating a strengths-based approach and emphasizing acceptance, I focus on collaboratively exploring each person's story to find the balance in accepting what they cannot control and making changes in areas they can.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is foremost in creating a safe space for clients to explore issues, identify patterns of relating, resolve conflicts, find meaning and seek answers. I believe strongly that this relationship coupled with each client's unique history, needs and strengths will help serve as a guide to treatment. I have nearly 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families.

As a trauma-informed therapist, I believe developing trust and safety within the therapeutic relationship is crucial to doing meaningful work together. For this reason, I strive to bring warmth and authenticity to my sessions with the goal of supporting clients in feeling truly seen and heard. In graduate school, I trained in feminist therapy which has informed my belief that clients are experts of their own experience and given me a deep understanding of how identity and oppression relate to one’s mental health. I am particularly interested in working with my clients around trauma, grief / loss , and relationships.

I can help you develop skills for better communication, relationship building, management of depression and anxiety, and grief .
There are times when balance feels lost. Challenges come from many angles and catch us off guard, even when we are prepared. We adjust as best as we can but, change can be difficult, whether its small change or traumatic things that happen in our lives. I work with clients to adjust to even the most difficult changes in a collaborative approach. Starting therapy should not have the stigma of weakness. I have many years of helping people with relationship issues and trauma and I provided a safe non judgmental environment to explore and be heard.

Our relationships have a significant impact on the quality of our lives, I believe that it is also within our relationships that meaningful changes can and do happen. People often come to therapy to discern what safe relationships look and feel like and how to maintain those relationships with greater security. Some come to grieve a loss , or to repair bonds after betrayal or conflict. Some want to work through anxieties that often arise in relation to others and systemic issues at large.

Are you on a path to parenthood or adjusting to life while pregnant or post-partum? Maybe you've had a pregnancy loss or things haven't gone the way you expected along the way. Are IVF, ART, or TFMR part of your story? Perhaps you have experienced grief connected to being a parent or with your own parents. You may be navigating your journey alone or with a chosen family. Pregnant people and their non-birthing partners need support during these important life changes. If any of this resonates with you, time and space to talk about it can be helpful. From there, changes and next steps on your path may seem more attainable.

Common triggers are life transitions like graduation, starting a career, entering a relationship, marking a milestone birthday, experiencing a loss , or retiring.
For almost forty years I have worked as a therapist addressing a broad array of concerns. Forming a solid working relationship is the foundation of all therapeutic change. No matter where someone is in the life cycle, the search for meaning and purpose always remains an essential endeavor. Learning how to take care of ourselves is the task of a lifetime. A shared exploration of the past opens the way to a deeper understanding of the present and inspires hope for shaping the future. My intent is to identify barriers to change, work towards their removal, and engender personal advancement.

I have experience and interest helping clients address a variety of issues including anxiety, grief , depression, life transitions, relationship difficulties, career goals, and issues of identity.
As a therapist, I am a witness to this journey that you are on and a fellow traveler. It’s my work to create a supportive space in which your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions can be explored with curiosity, kindness, and pragmatism. Together we will look at discomfort and explore the insight that it offers. I will ask questions that help you make connections to yourself and make meaning of the discomfort you feel. You will be given tools to map your thoughts, associations, physical experiences, and emotional states. We will practice being present for experience and feeling where there is openness and where there is restriction.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
