About My Clients

Are you tired of feeling like you’re never good enough or like you’re never doing enough? Do you tend to feel emotions deeply? Or perhaps, you’re an adoptee who never quite feels like you belong. You just want to feel seen and heard and to feel valued for who you are. If this sounds like you, I’m here to let you know that you don't have to play small anymore. Your story and your voice matters. I look forward to guiding you towards feeling empowered and liberated so you can lead your best life.

My Background and Approach

I provide individual therapy to adults and kids (ages 8+). I offer traditional Talk Therapy, but sometimes words can’t convey everything. So, I also specialize in the holistic approach of Expressive Arts Therapy to help you express yourself fully and explore obstacles that have been holding you back so you can begin to heal. I am a registered expressive arts therapist in training under the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association, and my master's degree is in expressive arts therapy and mental health counseling from Lesley University. I have specialized training and experience working with adoptees and the adoption triad, including with transracial adoptees and adoptees born in countries outside the U.S. I feel very passionate about this work.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you're whole, you're healthy, and you have everything you need within you. Life experiences, people around us, and situations have molded us to who we are now. Our symptoms, welcomed or not, have helped us survive up and to this point. Therapy assists us with unraveling the roots of our problems and understanding why we are the way we are. Sometimes we can learn skills to decrease our fear, sadness and anger, but oftentimes, creating a space of compassion for our younger selves, and all that they went through, can propel us into living a fuller, more passionate life.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
