About My Clients

You put energy into others while neglecting your own needs. Your belief in the goodness of others and discomfort saying no has led to unhealthy relationship(s). Life keeps happening to you, and your dreams have ended up on hold. You want to take control of your life, live authentically, and have mutually beneficial relationships but are struggling to do so without the help of an expert. You've grown tired of living the way you have been and are ready to feel better :)

My Background and Approach

I embrace creativity in my therapeutic approach as an artist with firsthand, lifelong experience with the healing power of art. My life has been personally enriched by the arts, and it is a huge part of my identity. In the therapy setting, I believe that art fills in the blanks where words do not suffice or are too painful to share. Art Therapy presents a unique opportunity to lessen some of the pressure you may feel talking about personal or painful experiences by projecting some of those feelings into the art-making and allowing the conversation to flow naturally from there.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In Western society, there is a lot of pressure to perform at work, at home, and in our social lives. However, I believe definitions of "success" are socially constructed and unimportant. Comparison kills confidence and creativity - Everyone is unique and has a different path to happiness! I help you create a vision for your ideal life, reflect on what isn't fitting your vision, and take ownership of your desires. I use art therapy exercises to enhance this process, as it's a great way of processing emotions and bringing our internal experiences to life. As a person-centered therapist, I honor you as the expert on yourself and view our relationship as the most important factor for treatment success.
