Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME, CHECK BACK LATER* Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. You might need help sorting out what's going on. As a therapist, I have learned that we are not alone in our struggles. People hurt together, and we also must heal together. Through our relationships and experiences, we can grow and rediscover what we thought was once lost. I want to help you down that path of discovery while using psychotherapeutic approaches such as attachment theory, AEDP, IFS, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.

As an art therapist, I recognize how creativity can more accurately depict a person's inner world. Color, shape and line can help bring meaning to experiences that may be difficult to verbalize for people of any age, experiencing a wide variety of mental health concerns. Harnessing your creativity in therapy can help redirect energy in a productive way and the art making process provides a visual of your progress and serves as a testament to how much you've grown. As an art therapist and a counselor I seek to offer a place of peace and refuge where clients can begin to heal, grow and develop their voice.

Sometimes we feel stuck, with no motivation or energy, and it can be hard to find a way out. It can even feel like we’ll be there forever. Our mental state can then start affecting our physical health and making us lose connection with ourselves or our loved ones. If you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, losses or big life changes, I can be of help.

Doesn't it seem ironic that the only constant in life is change? Our lives are ever changing and evolving; weathering away at some areas while creating and rebuilding others. The more we cling to what we know, to the past, and to our expectations of how things should look, the more we struggle to find peace in the moment of what actually is. Because of this belief I view acceptance and the discovery of meaning in life experiences as essential pieces to the overall puzzle that is our health and happiness.

I believe art is a language everyone once spoke fluently- an innate ability we all possess. As children, we use visual imagery as a way to understand and navigate our surroundings and this serves as our personal connection to the world. My long relationship to visual art and intimacy with various media informs the way I guide you toward your own personal uncovering and self-exploration. Art is the central force of our work together and we continue to remain open and curious about what story it may reveal.

The mind has a funny way of keeping us emotionally safe when we experience pain and hurt in our lives. At times we may do things that seem appropriate and true to what we feel, but only later do we often realize that our actions have not only hurt ourselves but also the ones we love. Oftentimes, have you felt that you just are going through the motions of your life and aren't able to have meaningful connections with those around you, but are unsure of how to change.
