Among these approaches are Art Therapy , Psychodrama, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Meditation, Mindfulness, and Somatic Therapy.
Relationship issues, transitions, losses, and other life challenges can be overwhelming to face alone. During such times, it could be reassuring to meet a person who can support you and help you see hope. The goal is to gradually move away from old patterns and towards a happier, harmonious, and more fulfilling life.

My approach spans from talk therapy and transpersonal therapy (mindfulness, spirituality) to DBT and expressive arts therapies (music, art , sand tray, drama).
I identify as a wounded healer. I understand the therapeutic tools that I use with clients on an intimate level, through both extensive self-application and careful application with others. Thus, my qualifications as a therapist come from many facet of my life, beyond my schooling, license, or any job I've worked in the field for the past 12 years. As a wounded healer, I have found my own way to sustained recovery and balance through a holistic approach. If any of the tools I offer work for you, then that is what matters. What also matters deeply is the trust we can build in our work together.

Within this space, talking is only one of the forms of communication and expression as I use breath, art , and brainspotting when fitting.
Being a young adult is SUPER hard. There is a lot of pressure to know exactly what your next steps should be. You may have noticed yourself feeling overwhelmed, anxious or disconnected. Do you find yourself having trouble with food, hating your body, or just not feeling like yourself lately? Maybe you have tried reaching out to friends or family and they just don’t get it. Over the past several years I have worked with clients with a diverse range of life experiences and through this work have developed a specialty in treating anxiety, depression, and eating disorders; and gaining clarity around purpose, self love, and sexuality.

We all face challenges and could use extra support at times. I offer a safe non-judgmental place, where you can let go of your daily stress and focus on your needs through creative expression. Art therapy integrates psychotherapy (talk therapy) with the creative process to improve and enhance mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. No prior artistic experience is needed to benefit from the healing power of expressive art . Art is a universal language of the mind that speaks through images & symbols and allows verbal and beyond-words communication.

Expressive art therapy offers a safe and nurturing environment to experience and express thoughts and feelings in a non-threatening and meaningful way.
I am currently accepting self-pay clients! During therapy sessions, I hold space for people facing all types of life experiences that encompass our collective human experience. Some key areas that I support individuals with are finding relief from anxiety through the cultivation of self-regulation and nervous system support, navigating major life transitions, healing from traumatic events, past or present, and exploring ways of living that are in alignment with one's true desires. I strive to help individuals build a relationship with themselves that are rooted in compassion and self-acceptance.

Art Therapy

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
