My background and training as an Art Therapist was a major determinant in my decision to become a Psychologist and Psychoanalyst. I was enthralled by the power, curative possibilities and revealing nature in the creative process. As a result, my area of particular interest is in working with artists, writers, photographers and individuals in the theater and music industry. I am an interactive therapist with extensive postgraduate training. When possible, I use humor in our sessions, pretty well I am told!

Through client-centered, psychodynamic, and integrative lenses I offer art and talk-based therapy.
Whether you're struggling or you seek ongoing care, I'm here to help. My practice is a nonjudgmental space where I actively listen and compassionately reflect what surfaces during sessions. I make room for the areas of life that need extra attention and where connections can be made to understand recurring patterns. We'll explore these evolving perspectives gently and with the help of both long and short term goals. We'll establish a pace, as client and therapist, to co-observe and reintegrate emotional “blocks” common to the human experience. I consider this work relational and humanistic.

I use verbal therapy paired with art therapy techniques to gain clarity and unpack challenging thoughts and feelings.
I genuinely believe that all people have the innate capacity for healing. I work with individuals who are experiencing anxiety, depression or otherwise struggling with life's many challenges. My main goal is to make you feel supported and comfortable in our working relationship. I utilize a client-centered approach meaning you are the expert on yourself, not me. Sometimes you may not be able to speak directly about certain struggles in your life, but being able to process it visually through art making can be healing in itself. Together, we will navigate you towards living a more meaningful and harmonious life.

My approach is utilizing Art Therapy, writing/journaling, breathwork, and traditional verbal therapies.
Have recent global, racial, political, and economic events caused you to feel as if you are in a vortex of emotional pain and suffering? Do you wonder how you can possibly begin to heal, if you are constantly being reminded of your past and present circumstances? These painful thoughts and circumstances can cause you to feel disconnected from yourself and community, angry, hyperaware, anxious, lack creativity, and even depressed. It is challenging to get to where you want to be if you can no longer imagine yourself there. As someone who also has a marginalized identity, I want you to know that I see you and that I hear you.

Life is difficult, and what makes it difficult usually involves other people. You can't change them, and changing yourself... who wants to stop being themselves to please other people? What you CAN change is how you RELATE to other people: how you act, how you think, what you're willing to put up with. A lot of pain is caused by our own limited view of ourselves; we contain much more than we know. I do talk therapy and art therapy, either or both -- that's up to you. You know more about you. I'll follow your lead.

My hope is that all of my clients will begin to approach both themselves and their world with more gentleness. With so many beautiful moments to capture, why is there this tendency to swim a river of negativity? Do you ever stop and notice what it is that you attend to? These are the things that are filling your life. I believe that small moments are actually opportunities to develop more peaceful encounters with ourselves. Fortunately, we can recreate the way we speak to ourselves. I have over fourteen years of experience and have treated children, adolescents and adults with trauma, depression, anxiety and learning differences.
