Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Registered Expressive Arts Therapist

Holding Space for You

"There is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there is still a sureness in you, where there’s a seamlessness in you, and where there is a confidence and tranquility in you."   

(John O'Donohue) 

The issues that bring you to therapy are unique, which means that they require a unique solution. I do not believe in or practice "one size fits all" counseling. Rather, I set the intention of meeting you wherever you are on your life's path. It is only in this way that your feelings and needs can be truly heard, your strengths can be identifiably seen and your transformation can be wholly witnessed. 

I navigate from the core belief that everyone has within them the innate ability to heal and grow.  The Higher Self is a place where wisdom, compassion and all of your answers live. It is more accessible than we may think, and the arts are always ready to show it to us.

I specialize in clinical issues of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life transition and trauma and enjoy working with adult, adolescent (ages 14+) and LGBTQ populations. I regularly use Expressive Arts, Psychodrama, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Spiritual Counseling approaches.


Why Expressive Arts Therapy?

Have you tried traditional talk therapy and find that you are still feeling stuck? Is it difficult for you to fathom how talking about a problem is going to help you through it? Then Expressive Arts Therapy may be just what you need to move through the blockages that keep you from accessing the rich resources within you to heal, grow and awaken to life.
