Announcement icon I currently offer sessions via phone or video calling. I'm transitioning groups to online and will post updates here and on my website.
Sometimes life can feel overwhelming, or just too difficult to face. I can help you sort through the confusion, and make sense of change. Through my work in community arts and mental health, I've helped people of all ages, from all walks of life, and I'm not afraid to listen. You can count on me for a direct, honest, yet compassionate and non-judgmental response. I strive to offer a safe, comfortable, encouraging space for you to explore, try things out, grow and become your best self.
I bring a holistic healing & Existential-Humanistic focus to sessions, blending evidence-based clinical assessment and therapeutic skills with mindfulness & mind/body techniques, Art Therapy/creative expression, and psychodynamic process. I'll work with you to identify core issues, and guide you through safely & effectively addressing each one.
Please email, text or call to schedule a free 15-minute consultation, or to ask any questions you may have. If you need to leave a voicemail, please let me know the best phone#, day and time to reach you.
