If you've made art before, you've probably encountered a release, or transformation of understanding, which often accompanies the process of creating. I help people experience that. Sometimes there are not words to describe how we feel. I bring art as an alternative method of expression, a visual vocabulary. When people get in touch with their own creative voice they often find therapy in the confidence of learning a new language, the ability to speak with their art and listen with their eyes.

I am a licensed mental health counselor, licensed creative arts therapist and yoga instructor. I have experience using art as therapy since 2000. I use DBT and RODBT in my work with individuals struggling with eating disorders. I am wholeheartedly committed to the Health At Every Size philosophy.

I am also a certified Irish dance teacher; I love to teach and dance as much as possible. I incorporate my knowledge of body movement with my therapeutic understanding of people. I am passionate about using art and mindful body awareness in my work and life.
