I am a Mental Health Counselor Associate level and Art Therapist. I integrate talk therapy with creative expression to facilitate clients' self-expression and relaxation. My approach is person-centered, supportive, and strengths-based, which I believe assists clients to find the gift of healing withing themselves. I have experience with trauma, abuse, sexual assault, anxiety, depression and grief and have also worked with families to increase healthy communication. I believe in building a strong therapeutic relationship with each client, based on a non-judgmental and compassionate partnership in the healing process.
I specialize in art therapy, a wonderful tool to explore thoughts and feelings difficult to describe verbally. Clients may work with dreams, process emotions and use art to discover themselves, their values, hopes and aspirations. I am fully bilingual and offer sessions in either English or Spanish.
Personal suffering is often at the root of problems with thinking, feeling and functioning. Therapy is a process of growth and transformation that is rooted in respect for the mystery of each human person and the uniqueness of their journey. My role is to nurture hope and the healing process for each client I have the privilege to work with.
