About

If you are feeling stuck, I can be a guide in helping you find movement in your life. I will work with you to better understand your body and mind's ways of knowing. We may use creative practices like artmaking and body awareness along with discussion. Based on your goals, we will find what works best for you. I use a relational approach with a dash of humor in my practice, making space for both the hard things and the good stuff in life. Therapy should help you to feel that range more deeply, to feel you have options, and to feel capable of knowing what you need.
I am a board certified art therapist and licensed clinical professional counselor. I am currently training in Somatic Experiencing, an approach that addresses trauma stored in the body. You don't have to be an "artist" to try art therapy. You can use creativity to process experiences, organize your thoughts, build pride in identity, or simply to relax.
If you are facing life transitions, stress, loss of sense of purpose or meaning, overwhlem, trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, or depression, let's talk to see if we are the right fit. My non-intimidating approach blends compassion with a sense of humor as you take steps toward positive change.
