"People come to therapy for a variety of different reasons. Some individuals embark on a therapeutic process with specific goals in mind or because they have recently been impacted by particularly challenging life events. Others may pursue therapy and specifically creative arts psychotherapy as an on-going process toward deeper self-knowledge, growth, and healing. I offer individuals and couples an approach that is holistic, client-centered, non-judgmental and creative through traditional talk therapy, creative arts infused therapy, and often a synthesis of the two.

In my clinical work, I collaborate with individuals and couples in identifying the personal, cultural, and institutional factors behind the suffering they endure. In doing so, we come to ask how we might act to change such factors, embarking on paths toward healing, integration, and empowerment. These anti-oppressive, liberation-based inquiries are bolstered via a treatment approach that is psychodynamically informed."

Therapy provides a dedicated time to delve into what is troubling you--complications or dissatisfaction with family, friendship, intimacy, romantic relationships, career, sex; with internal struggles regarding your sense of self and your relationship to the greater world, including issues of discrimination and prejudice or regarding past traumas; or with existential dilemmas about life, death and the meaning of it all.
