In my own experiences of anxiety, rigidity, and perfectionism, I re-discovered the cathartic process of making. I believe our right brain and bodies can be a powerful source of wisdom in a society where dualism, linearity, and order reign. I will support you in increasing somatic awareness to navigate connection and disconnection with flexibility and compassion. As an art therapist, my approach is body centered, relationship focused, trauma informed, and culturally responsive. In art therapy sessions, the process of making is often just as important as the final product, so no artistic skill is needed. While I believe everyone can benefit from art therapy and the creative process, I work with you to tailor sessions to support your healing journey. I center myself in gentleness, humor, and humility to prioritize attunement and trust in our therapeutic relationship. Ecopsychology, the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), and somatic mindfulness inform my multimodal approach.
