I provide an individualized and non-judgmental space to explore obstacles hindering clients from personal and creative self-fulfillment. My approach is client-centered, goal-oriented, holistic, and collaborative while drawing on a theoretical background of cognitive-behavioral, relational, psychodynamic, and expressive arts therapies. I utilize interactive discussion and written/expressive exercises tailored to each individual's needs.
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to answer any questions that you may have regarding my services.

I use art therapy as a service to help individuals access and express feelings too complex and/or difficult to verbally discuss. It can be utilized as a primary treatment or as an adjunct to enhance verbal
psychotherapy. All ages can benefit from this and no experience in art is required.
I help couples and families strengthen their relationships and deal more effectively with the following issues:
≈ Poor or Strained Communication
≈ Frequent Arguments
≈ Pre-marital or Pre-commitment Concerns
≈ Difficulty Handling Stress Together
≈ Trust Issues
