Art therapist now accepting new clients. I believe in developing the strengths natural to each individual, in tackling life problems from multiple angles, and in using creativity for healing. Art therapy builds on traditional talk therapy, adding an element of nonverbal, metaphorical, and expressive processing that goes beyond words. Artmaking can be meditative, cathartic, empowering, and healing, and it helps to foster insight and verbal discussion. No art skills or previous experience necessary.
I help adults, adolescents, and children to solve individual, couple, and family issues. We can work together to address: anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, faith crisis, life transitions, and parenting and maternity issues. Clients describe me as warm, genuine, present, insightful, and easy-going.
I serve children, adolescents, adults, and couples as an Art Therapist and Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#100335). I am supervised by Tracy Bevington (LMFT #53455) at Pacific MFT Network in a group private practice with discreet, comfortable offices in both Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach. I offer some weekend and evening hours.

Tracy is an excellent supervisor and colleague. I've learned much from her clinically and professionally. She's warm, funny, and knowledgeable. And I've never met anyone else who inspires literal applause when you just mention their name.
