It is my personal belief that everyone deserves a therapeutic relationship in their lives. For many of us that means going to therapy. I strive to offer a therapy experience that is positive and rewarding. I create an atmosphere of safety and non-judgement in which you are able to explore all aspects of yourself and your relationships. As your therapist I will be your guide in discovering and uncovering patterns in your life that may leave you feeling stuck, depleted, anxious, or depressed. By finding, looking at, and challenging these patterns we can help you to develop new ways of thinking in order to live life in a way that is meaningful for you.

I work from a relational perspective and with the creative arts. I offer verbal therapy and when needed or requested I offer exploration of feelings, experiences, and dreams through the creative arts. In my experience there are times in therapy when there are no words to express the feelings that arise. In these moments I offer creative arts as a form of expression so that we can see what is happening in your emotional world without the pressure of knowing what words to use.
When appropriate I also draw from mind/body methods, such as mindfulness, to address any physical manifestations of anxiety or depression.
