My Approach to Helping

I approach therapy as a collaborative and creative effort, incorporating holistic modalities, such as art therapy, mindfulness, yoga and self-reflection into my work.

Drawing upon my practice experience in trauma-informed care, family-oriented treatment and behavioral health, I offer a compassion-focused, culturally sensitive, and humanistic perspective of the human condition.

Using an eclectic blend of creative arts and research-based intervention techniques, I will support you in delving deep into your imagination, in order to explore your internal thought patterns and identify the challenges and barriers that have been holding you back from living your best life.

Together, we will walk gently through the process of unpacking the complexities of your unique personality, and exploring ‘what makes you, you!’ We will work together to set attainable goals. in order to make healthy, sustainable, and regenerative lifestyle changes.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Resilience Lab therapist. Our mission is to create a systemic impact in the US mental health market by improving access to quality care. We are building the largest and most diverse community of clinicians working collaboratively to produce better outcomes.

I am a neurodiverse therapist, social worker, artist, mother, empath, nature lover, and part-time animal rehabilitator on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. I identify as a pansexual and pantheistic cisgender woman. My eclectic approach to establishing bonds and delivering therapeutic services to clients, fully honors and recognizes the powerfully interwoven connection between mind, body, spirit, and heart.

I am currently in the process of completing a 200 hour Yoga teacher training program, with the intention of incorporating yoga, meditation, and healing touch, into my future practice.

I have always felt very passionate and drawn towards working in the field of disabilities. To honor this passion, I volunteer regularly at an Adult Resource Center, teaching art classes to adults with various intellectual and developmental disabilities.

In addition to my passion for developing bonds between people, I am also a fierce animal lovercat lady, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter regularly.
