About My Clients

Many seek out expressive therapy because they want another way to be in relation to themselves, to express, to see, to understand and to heal deeply. Often my clients say they enjoy our work, because its "unconventional." I've worked with diverse individuals, who have diverse needs & life experiences. Often my clients have experienced trauma, are in the midst of life transitions, or struggling with chronic pain. Many I work with are seen as "high achievers," but maybe struggling in other ways.

My Background and Approach

I enjoy offering unconventional methods of psychotherapy which may include; art, movement, mindfulness and visualization meditations. I supports individuals in creating emotional coherence by discovering the unconscious and conscious emotional leanings and working towards updating those leanings with new information. Others have described me as gentle, direct, supportive, reflective, creative, playful, transparent & open. I am a natural helper & deeply care about those I work with. Professionally trained at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA for both undergraduate (2007) & graduate degrees in Mental Health Counseling and Expressive Art Therapies (2011). I continue to deepen my artistic practice and learn new mediums. In 2022, I brought on an associate, Morgan Johnston (she/her). Morgan is a board certified music therapist and masters level clinician. She is a warm, deep and a creative soul who enjoys helping folks find their own unique expressive language for healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There are many ways to heal and it can look different at different times in one's life. I love being able to offer expressive experiences for people and have witnessed how art making can enhance our experience of life (no skill needed). I've also learned how the brain-body-mind processes information and utilize neuroscience to help inform and target the work my clients and I do. This helps me facilitate very deep healing focused on integration (which is at the root of wellness.) It is possible to heal and re-train one's nervous system in order to allow more love, creativity, and joy in your daily life. It is possible to be more grounded, more compassionate towards yourself, and allow yourself to rest. I engage with the women’s movement, suicide awareness, eco/environmental & sustainability practices & the student debt crisis. I ally with LGBTQ+ and BLM. I actively embrace all cultures and practice cultural humility.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
I have experience with the following
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Taoism
  • Interfaith
