As a psychologist and registered art therapist, I believe in the healing potential of mindful creative expression.
As we move through life, there are times when support and gentle guidance helps us to continue forward, heal, and discover meaning. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere that is built on mutual respect and acceptance as I journey alongside my clients. I hope to establish a space that is accepting of all life experiences and open to the spectrum of emotion and personal expression. I take an eclectic approach that includes talk, art , and mindfulness practice, depending on your needs and comfort level. Together, we’ll decide on a modality that could help you learn more about yourself and begin to make changes.

Unfortunately, I'm at capacity and no longer taking new clients. As a psychotherapist and social worker, I believe that therapy is a journey of reflection and growth. My clinical practice is grounded in evidence-based practices, client-centered, strength-based, and collaborative approaches. I serve children, adolescents, adults and families facing numerous adjustments and challenges including, behavioral, school, work/life challenges, life adjustments, family and relationship conflict, depression, anxiety, OCD, and exposure or history of trauma.

In addition to traditional talk therapy, I am professionally trained in art therapy .
I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Self-love and seeking out a life worth living can feel tedious, overwhelming, and out of reach. Through therapy, we can work together to better understand how to navigate life, cope with stressors, process trauma, and begin living with purpose. I use an integrated and holistic approach when working with clients that is rooted in Humanistic psychology. Additional influences include CBT, mindfulness/ACT, motivational interviewing, and attachment theory. We will work together to tailor treatment to your individual needs.

Therefore, I often adopt art and play therapies, along with a cognitive behavioral counseling and solution-oriented approaches.
I believe that when people seek counseling it is because they want to make a change in their lives, improve a life situation, make a decision, solve a problem or have greater understanding and insight to their lives. Counseling is a trusting partnership between client and counselor. A process of looking at and integrating thoughts, feelings and actions in a safe environment. It is not about telling you how or when to change, but rather finding what works best for you. Effective counseling requires a commitment of time, energy, and active participation by both client and counselor.

I am depth oriented, person centered, and art -based therapist. I deeply trust my clients, their wisdoms, and the potentiality of our relationships. In this work, we use and engage the symptoms and experiences of anxiety, depression, insecurity, etc. to move deeper into what often lies beneath these experiences: the enigma of living. Using compassion, acceptance, kindness, courage, and creativity this enigma becomes a dynamic partner in creating the life we want and need to live.

Are you looking to strengthen your mental health? Are you facing new changes, worry, fear, loss, distress? Life can be overwhelming to cope through. Now add in the stressors from our ever shifting world… but, that’s where talk therapy and art therapy can help! My goal as a counselor is to be a non-judgmental advocate that provides you a safe place to openly share about these issues and more. My personal life experience has led me to take passion in advocating and working with those who are trying to concieve, dealing with infertility, have endured miscarriage(s), are surviving postpartum, or are a stressed parent among others.
