About

Beginning therapy can feel like a challenging process, so I am happy to help ease the process in any way that I can. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and young adult clients to feel more comfortable accessing and working through their emotional and cognitive processing in hopes of strengthening coping skills and practicing authentic self-reflection. My therapeutic and humanistic approach focuses on encouraging agency, supporting goals, and facilitating healing. I believe that a thoughtful and psychodynamic process of individualized or group art therapy creates a space for safe emotional and creative exploration.
I am a board-certified registered and licensed art therapist. I am licensed to practice both art therapy and psychotherapy in New York as a creative arts therapist. In our sessions, you can expect flexibility based on your comforts, an introspective blend of talk therapy and creative processing, and a supportive environment to explore your therapy goals.
Due to the pandemic circumstances, I am only accepting telehealth clients. I offer free 15-min phone consultations. If you would like to learn more about my art therapy services or would like to inquire about beginning art therapy sessions, please reach out via email or phone and I will respond as soon as I can.
