My Approach to Helping
My belief is that with support and opportunities for self-expression all of us can grow into happier, healthier, more balanced and connected individuals. I integrate mindfulness, meditation, and art-making with verbal therapy to provide clients with opportunities for increased self-awareness and self-compassion. My approach is holistic; believing that mind/body/spirit and past/present/future are inextricably linked. Therapy is a journey we embark on together with an attitude of compassion and curiosity.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
It is a great honor to support clients on their journey. It is important to me to help clients understand how their past experiences are impacting their present. When a client can begin to recognize that their old way of coping was serving them in the past but there may be a new, better way moving forward it's a relief. Witnessing growth and facilitating change is incredibly rewarding.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist/art therapist my number one goal is to provide a safe space that allows clients to express themselves with truth. This allows an opportunity to explore the parts of themselves they may have disowned, limiting self-beliefs which stem from past experiences, and challenging emotions. Within this safe space greater self-compassion grows.
