My miniature poodle, Harry, and I provide a warm, safe environment for clients who value whole brain therapy. In addition to receptivity and connection. I use art, creativity, Brainspotting, EMDR, and honest, insightful communication to empower and reinforce each client in his/her unique healing process.

I work with trauma primarily through Brainspotting (or E.M.D.R.)and the art process. These therapies open the right brain to access the emotional, traumatic memories, and then connect to the left brain to understand and resolve issues. I also provide tools and techniques that help clients manage their issues and stress.

I believe my practice is unique because I use the newest brain techniques (Brainspotting and E.M.D.R.) in conjunction with art therapy. As an art therapist and artist, I understand and appreciate the creative process and its natural role in healing spiritually as well as emotionally.
