Hello! I am a Board Certified Art Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Certified Transgender Care Therapist working in the Pittsburgh area. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults and approach therapy from an experiential, feminist, multicultural approach. I utilize art making and expressive therapies to help facilitate greater self-acceptance, self-confidence, personal growth, and to empower you to create positive change. I believe art making has the power to heal and the magic to promote growth in a safe way, and it would be an honor to work with you.
I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA2s+ communities, children and adolescents, individuals with diverse multicultural and ethnic backgrounds and with a variety of presenting concerns as listed on this page. I am a listener and am here to hear your story and provide wholehearted counseling to support you and your journey.
My goal is to create a safe, affirming and warm environment for you and if you'd like, to guide you in the art making process to help you feel empowered to create change. I hope to make your journey in therapy validating, supportive, and strive to make you feel heard, understood, and accepted.
