I believe in each person's unique wisdom and resilience. I use art therapy and sensory motor tools to work with youth. These unique tools offer youth powerful outlets for expression and exploration, and provide ways to explore issues that may be difficult to verbalize. Art therapy and sensory motor interventions are designed to help by accessing core developmental tasks, and by using the relationship with the therapist or with caregivers in sessions to build healthy attachments. Art therapy and sensory motor modalities can be particularly helpful for young children and for youth who have experienced overwhelming life experiences such as trauma or multiple caregivers. I invite caregivers into sessions to teach skills that can be used at home.

I also work with LGBTQ youth and families, and offer a safe, accepting environment to explore and understand sexual orientation and gender identity.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in working with children, teens, and families who have experienced trauma. Often, Trauma is thought of as major life incidents that overwhelm us and may threaten our health and safety. I work with these traumas (which I often refer to as acute traumas) as well as persistent and complicated traumas. Often, these kinds of traumas occur if somebody has experienced ongoing physical, sexual, or emotional abuse; physical or emotional neglect or maltreatment; or major attachment disruptions, such as the loss of a parent, adoption, or placement in foster care. Often, it can be difficult to talk about these experiences, especially for children or teens. Art Therapy and sensory motor therapy offer non-verbal ways of addressing trauma when words may not be enough.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Each time I meet a new family or client, I am amazed at the unique strength each person brings to their life. As a therapist, it is an honor and a privilege to help others build and use those strengths. As an art therapist, I get to use art materials to help others find creative outlets for their own healing and growth. Often this process results in pride, improved self-esteem, and a powerful voice. As a therapist who works with children, teens, and families, I deeply value the process and courage it takes for parents and their children to learn new ways of seeing each other, hearing each other, and new patterns of relationship. It is an incredible privilege to witness this process for individuals and families.
