About

Creativity can be foundational to positive and longstanding change. We come into the world with an innate skill to solve the many problems that arise during development. Sometimes these solutions bring up new challenges or get in the way of our relationships and our ability to enjoy life. I work with children, adults, elders, and couples who are struggling to adapt to a stressful world. By developing a trusting relationship where exploration is welcomed and analyzed, we are able to find new ways of functioning, new solutions to our interpersonal conflicts, and improve our ability to flexibly adapt to our changing world.
My specialty is in providing psychotherapy for individuals across the lifespan who've struggled with the symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief/loss, psychosis, and ADHD. I use a neurodevelopmental and psychoanalytic perspective that is informed by the impacts of society and culture.
I draw upon playful and artistic expressions to help us find the metaphors that work for your symptoms and difficulties. Both children and adults may benefit from a reconnection with the playful elements that sustain us in times of stress. My hope is that we may find a way to rekindle the childlike enthusiasm for experimentation we were all born with.
