About

I offer a welcoming, compassionate, and non-judgmental space to share your story. Sometimes, problems we face — whether they come with a diagnosis or not — may be overwhelming, debilitating, paralyzing, unhealthy, or destructive to ourselves or our relationships. I work collaboratively to help people deconstruct and free themselves from the grip of problems that may be overwhelming and oppressive and move toward preferred ways of living and thriving.
My approach is centered in Narrative Therapy and Contemplative Psychotherapy, which are strength-based, holistic, and focus on wellness, growth, and healing. Counseling can be a collaborative effort where we can use verbal and/or musical interactions to help you identify and re-author a life more congruent with your beliefs and values.
People communicate in verbal and non-verbal ways.  As an Expressive Arts Therapist who specializes in Music Therapy, this offers you the choice and opportunities to bring music into the therapeutic conversation.  Sometimes, music itself is the therapeutic conversation.
