If you are struggling in life, chances are you have a diagnosis which is termed a psychiatric disorder- but diagnoses only define the negative aspects of who you are! In fact, most "disorders" have a wealth of amazingly positive traits also associated with them. Together, you and I will work to uncover your superpowers- those positive traits that diagnoses don't cover, and which make you amazing. Some of the therapies I incorporate into my practice include art therapy, play therapy, guided visualizations and rituals, narrative therapy, practical life skills (CBT), Reiki, mindfulness and other relaxation techniques.
I also utilize pet therapy, pop culture, board games, fiction, apps, and even video games to make the work of psychotherapy fun and engaging. The brain loves novelty, and these outside-of-the-box approaches to therapy and wholistic wellness help to facilitate change, and even to make it enjoyable!
I work with all ages, having worked in varied settings from summer camps to senior homes before coming to private practice. I specialize in working with individuals wrestling with anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, existential exploration, grief, workplace politics, and teen angst and identity issues.
