Announcement icon I am currently offering telehealth only sessions. Accepting new patients in NC & MA, call or email for free consult!
Are you feeling tired and constantly stressed out? Are you struggling to come to terms with a new diagnosis, chronic illness or lack of self-care in your life? You may find the health care system and ‘wellness industry’ to feel frustrating, invalidating and inaccessible especially if you are disabled, LGBTQIA+ or a POC. It may feel challenging to figure out how to manage it all and reestablish some balance to your life. I am here to help and am passionate about supporting you to create a way forward.
As a licensed counselor (in NC and MA), registered art therapist and certified health coach I prefer to take a person centered and inclusive approach that allows you to feel empowered to prioritize areas of your life you want to work on. This allows us to take stock of where you are, and where you are going using your strengths and inherent wisdom.
There is no pressure to use any specific modality in your sessions. Art therapy is a practice that can be accessed by all and tailored to your needs if you are interested. You are not pressured to do art at all if that does not resonate with you. If this sounds like it may be a good fit for you, please reach out for a free 10-15 min phone consultation
