Message to clients

Do you feel you could benefit from a heart-felt presence and warmth, with an emphasis on the skill of listening? Are you desiring change and transformation? The body can sometimes tell the story that words cannot. If you desire healing through art, I incorporate art therapy, writing and movement-based experiences to support clients with accessing their own internal wisdom.

I offer a holistic approach to therapy focused on identifying personal narrative, goals for empowerment and personal growth. I work primarily as an art/expressive therapist using a variety of mediums and techniques to include body-based work, somatics, Body Poetry, art therapy, sandtray therapy, CBT, DBT, EFT, and mindfulness skills.

My passion is to support women and girls to empower themselves and their communities. I am an ardent advocate for women’s issues and value my ability to provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals to grow and thrive. My ability to hold space, be present and bring an empathetic ear to the therapeutic process is what allows me to support clients.
