Creative Art Therapist in Gibbsboro, NJ

About My Clients

Are you anxious and distraught because your body feels like your enemy? Disordered eating, body image distress, chronic illness and/or ADHD can be a tangled mess, one making the other worse. Maybe people in your life blame you because you “just don’t take care of yourself,” and you're overwhelmed with guilt and shame. But it doesn’t have to be like this. I want to help you get out of this spiral, release expectations that don't fit your life, and feel confident in the body and mind you have.

My Background and Approach

I want to help you feel less anxious about eating, trying on clothes, doctor appointments, cleaning your kitchen - whatever feels overwhelming because you're dealing with disordered eating, body image distress, chronic illness and/or ADHD. These struggles have complex roots, so we'll dig deep to explore how you ended up in a fog of anxiety, guilt, shame & hopelessness. I'll help you reimagine and start to create something different. We'll use art therapy to examine behaviors and unconscious thoughts and feelings that are blocking your healing process. Paired with discussion, creative expression activates parts of your brain that allow for the kind of 'a-ha' moments that lead to insight and change. I'm empathetic, nonjudgmental, and strive for an honest and trusting relationship with you to help heal relational wounds that might be contributing to your current struggles.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My therapy approach is shaped by my values and politics. In my experience, mental health issues are more complex than formulaic approaches to therapy can fully address. Your thoughts and behaviors are important, but sociocultural context is also a significant factor. My guiding values include care, compassion, creativity, curiosity, fairness & inclusion. I'm committed to liberatory politics – including anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-speciesism and climate justice. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 5, struggled with an eating disorder for 18 years, and was diagnosed with ADHD in my 40s. Diabetes + an eating disorder complicated getting competent care, so I now try to be the therapist I wish I’d had by integrating professional knowledge and experience with personal insight and empathy. I’m married and we have a house full of rescued animals - 2 dogs, 3 cats & a blind sparrow (which is a fun story). I’m an artist, vegan, volunteer at a local animal shelter, and I adore Gritty.
