Facing life's difficulties can be experienced as a combination of confusing, scary, and at times outright overwhelming. Many of these difficulties arise when our approach to the world, while adaptive at one time, is no longer effective in our current life situation. Because emotional distress is often related to dynamics we are unaware of, we can find ourselves unable to break free from unhealthy, self-defeating patterns that prevent us from leading fulfilling lives.

Life is filled with sorrow and joy, frustration and wonder, stagnation and growth, obstacles and openings. At times, our skill set and resources are not optimal for helping us adapt to the shifts and movement in our lives. I believe that art therapy and counseling can support understanding of our skills and resources that better equip us to adapt to life's changes. Art therapy allows opportunities to imagine the best, healthiest version of ourselves and permit clarifying moments where we perceive possibility and potential. My goal is to support clients in becoming active agents in developing positive, purposeful ideas towards wellness and good health.

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on providing a safe environment from which a therapeutic relationship can grow. Through this experience, feelings and thoughts outside our everyday awareness come alive and can be used for self-understanding and growth. As a result, change tends to occur. I assist clients with a range of life situations and emotional concerns, and am interested in working with individuals who have difficulties in relationships and with anxiety, depression, and self-esteem, and who have experienced parental loss and trauma.

I'm fully empathic with the emotional suffering that comes with being human. I always approach whatever my client comes in with from the perspective that they are right to be having the emotional experience they're having; i.e., there are reasons for it. No judgment. No blame. As I engage in a therapeutic alliance with them, we explore together for understandings and meanings to learn those reasons, which no one can do alone. Through the alliance with me as a trusted professional, my client gains early symptom relief and is fostered in higher functioning through feeling better.
