Are you feeling overwhelmed by life's challenges? Are your emotions, or a complicated relationship, weighing you down? Are you interested in finding creative solutions to your problems? If so, perhaps counseling, art therapy, or some combination of the two might be right for you! I offer a supportive and non-judgmental space where you will learn to take charge of your thoughts, emotions, and actions while practicing better self-care and improving insight. My areas of expertise include trauma, HIV, diabetes, depression, anxiety, multicultural and LGBTQ+ concerns, existential dilemmas, spiritual concerns, and grief and loss.
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Professional Art Therapist, I offer individual counseling and art therapy for adults of all ages and abilities. Additionally, my doctoral work in pastoral care has enabled me to assist clients with tapping into their inner strengths and sense of resiliency.
Whether you prefer traditional talk therapy, or are open to using the art-making to sort out those things you can't find words for, I hope we can work together to bring about the lasting change, self-acceptance and awareness you seek.
