My Approach to Helping

My approach is warm, respectful and caring. I believe that effective therapy starts with a safe and trusting relationship between the therapist and client. I attempt to create a supportive and safe environment for expression by offering my clients guidance, insight, humor, and compassion. I work from a Humanistic/Existential framework and I use a variety of tools from Family systems, Cognitive-Behavioral, Narrative, and Psychodynamic therapies. I am an art therapist and I am also trained in EMDR. I have experience working with all age groups and diverse cultures and I offer both short and long-term counseling. Please contact me if you would like to hear more about my services.
