I am a licensed graduate art therapist and counselor and am excited to work with you using art therapy and other therapy modalities. My goal as a therapist is to support clients in making meaning and finding peace. My approach may involve anything from us working together to soothe your anxiety, to sorting through unspeakable trauma. I aim to create a space that is warm and devoid of judgement. I will walk beside you and explore with you, and other than the occasional gentle nudge, I won’t push you where you aren’t ready to go.

All clients are unique as are all therapists. Research has shown that clients benefit the most from therapy, when there is a strong match between client and therapist. I encourage my clients ability to unpack and explore their worldview in a safe place. I am sensitive, to how considering new perspectives can be both scary and challenging. Courageously re-framing severe distress as a logical, biological and psychological response to environmental conditions, guides my practice. I work with adolescents, adults, individuals and families.

I am Chris Farley, though not the former Saturday Night Live comedian famous for saying you could end up "living in a van down by the river." I still think I'm funny, but I'm actually a therapist trained in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) with 20+ years of experience working with adults, teens & families. In recent years, I have begun focusing more on using gaming and nerd culture to connect with and help clients feel accepted, developing Dungeons & Dragons Social Skills/Therapy Groups for adults and teens. If you are interested in learning more about how gaming can be used in therapy, give me a call or shoot me an email.
