Creative people: Sometimes it may feel like our society doesn’t make space for us. We can feel out of place, alienated, let down, pressured, unsure, unsupported, scattered, stuck, stymied, unconfident, undeserving, unfulfilled, unseen, sabotaged by others, or sabotaged by ourselves. No matter how this manifests for you – as anxiety about the future or depression about the past – you have what it takes to move through the hard stuff towards your truest, proudest self.
I offer a goal-centered approach of helping you heal, strengthen, and rise above. I specialize in a Cognitive-Behavioral approach: we look at what's happening right now with your feelings, thoughts, and actions, and try to course-correct. My objective is to help you make tangible changes in your life.
I get what it's like moving through life as a creative person, tackling problems with a creative mind, and trying to face the struggles that we creatives encounter so frequently. I have worked as a professional animator for film and TV, and as an author, and I hobby in theater, music, and visual arts. I've learned that we don't have to struggle alone.

I mainly work with folks who experience depressive or anxious symptoms from work, home, family, relationships, or their craft. After I get an understanding of what the issues are, we will collaborate on creating clear goals for you. You deserve happiness. We will look at what's blocking this, and begin practicing some tools to help. Most clients see the first signs of change within a few sessions.

I specialize in CBT, SFBT, Narrative therapy, person-centered, and mindfulness. We might delve into the "why" of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. But we'll always steer towards self-empowerment and making tangible changes. I might challenge you. But I will be your biggest cheerleader. This is also cooperative effort so there might be homework between meetings.
