About My Clients

Many of us are doing our best to live unburdened, stress-free, balanced lives, but life can be messy, challenging, and unexpected. If you feel you need help regaining clarity while you answer life's hardships and re-center yourself, I am here to assist you. Whether this is your first-time seeking services or you're familiar with the process, treatment can help you address life concerns, explore hopes, and set goals that fit your needs.

My Background and Approach

Everyone has a different life story, shaped by unique beliefs, behaviors, and experiences, that is why I utilize a person-focused, humanistic approach, centered on respecting your individuality. I value art as a treatment modality, and I believe in its intrinsic healing capabilities. Creative expression in art therapy is used to provide an outlet for self-awareness, emotional release, conflict resolution, and more. No formal training is required. In addition to providing art and psychotherapy, I offer evidence-based treatments such as ACT and CBT, all of which can be used to heal traumas, decrease distress, adapt behaviors, set/maintain boundaries, and discover new skills as you engage in self-reflection. I strive to offer a safe, judgment free space, where you can voice your thoughts, fears, and feelings, openly and authentically. My overall mission is to foster personal growth and help you navigate the path of mental wellness while empowering you to author your own unique story.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I advocate for psychological, social, and ecological justice for people from all walks of life. I feel it is important to really listen to those around us and take measured actions that promote true fairness, cooperation, and inclusion. I offer a sliding scale to clients to help ensure everyone has access to treatment, and I see clients virtually and in-person. On a more personal note, I love nature, and I am a huge animal lover. If we meet online, you may even meet my two kitty co-workers. Thank you for taking the time to stop by my profile, if any of this resonates with you, please do not hesitate to reach out. I look forward to hearing from you!
