About My Clients

My clients are diverse, insightful, curious and motivated to delve into a deep understanding of their past, present, and future. Clients working through complex trauma who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ, artists, creatives, empaths, and life-long-learners resonate with my style of practice. I best serve adults, teens, children, and families who are struggling with attachment, belonging, identity, depression, anxiety, existential and relational issues through developing resilience and authenticity.

My Background and Approach

Applying holistic, culturally competent, and creative interventions with evidenced based practice is the hallmark of my therapeutic approach. I will provide tools to tap into the innate creator that dwells in each of us and from that space, help you develop tools rooted in your unique strengths. Together we will practice strategies and techniques to build resilience, manage symptoms of depression and anxiety, ease stress, and develop positive self esteem. I received my advanced training in clinical mental health and art therapy at Lesley University and have attended subsequent trainings in CBT, DBT, person centered approach, transpersonal psychology, positive psychology, Jungian theory and dynamic psychotherapy. I believe that through neuroplasticity enabled through creative practice as well as somatic body centered therapy, anyone can gently get in touch with and heal past trauma sustained at any phase of development to be come your truest and most authentic version of self.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The human experience is a flowing continuum and anyone can make a change at any point in their life. We are powerful beings with the ability to learn, heal, and grow through interpersonal support, focus, kindness toward self and service toward others. I believe imprints and beliefs formed in utero and early childhood unconsciously govern fantastic amounts of our day-to-day life. We can unearth these beliefs, heal the trauma that may have caused them, and choose new programs through which to operate. I believe in honoring this process with cultural competency, applied creativity, and acknowledgement of systems of oppression that contribute to the limiting beliefs and experiences of historically oppressed groups. I support the LGBTQ community, Black Lives Matter, and any organization focused on racial, gender, and marginalized equity. Separateness is a learned illusion. We are connected to all of nature and each other and from that connection we can grow stronger together.
