About My Clients

I approach my clients holistically. They are not a presenting problem or an imbalance of neurotransmitters. Instead, I understand that my clients’ concerns reside not only in thoughts and feelings but also in a communicating body that must be considered and attended to. I am part of a private practice, Dancing Dialogue LCAT LMHC PLLC, that includes three dance therapists. We use a team approach and can work collaboratively if you are interested.

My Background and Approach

As a family therapist and an art therapist, I like to see my clients as part of a bigger picture. We are all tied together in complex ways. I am passionate about developing practices to grow resilient families and communities through shared creative experiences . I am a licensed creative arts therapist and registered board-certified art therapist. I received my MA in Art Therapy from NYU, am certified in culturally-competent trauma intervention by the International Trauma Studies Program at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, have undergone extensive post-graduate training in family and couples therapy at The Ackerman Institute for the Family and am a graduate of Suzi Tortora's Ways of Seeing training program at Dancing Dialogue in dance/ movement therapy. Because of my eclectic training, I attend not just to the thoughts and feelings of my clients, but their body and how they feel about it, as well as their role in their family and community.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We are all part of a larger world outside of ourselves. The health and strength of our local and global communities have major impacts on our physical and mental health. I volunteer at a local food pantry every Friday morning to combat food scarcity in my community and am active in climate justice work on a global and local level.
