About

There are many ways to process experiences and feelings, not simply limited to talking. Integrating psychotherapy and creative expression can provide a refreshing, insightful, and effective experience in therapy. Some of my areas of focus include trauma, anxiety and depression, stress, loss and life transitions, as well as family and relationship difficulties, among others.
My approach is diverse, including not only visual art making, but also writing, breath work, and traditional verbal therapies to support my clients' needs through the ebb and flow of life. Additionally, I am a certified yoga teacher and draw from my knowledge of eastern practices such as yoga, meditation, and mindfulness when suitable.
In my practice, I work collaboratively to support children, adolescents, and adults in their process of problem solving, personal growth, developing meaning, and enhancing relationships. I support my clients in a non-judgmental and safe space for the overall purpose of establishing harmony in their lives and drawing themselves nearer to joy. -Saturday Availability-
