I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Art Therapist providing affordable, quality therapy to adolescents, adults, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds. 

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 specialize in helping individuals ages 11 and up to gain insight, learn coping skills, and tap into undiscovered or lost internal resources for the following issues: 

≈ Issues Specific to Artists, Musicians, Performers, & Anyone Involved in Creative Fields 

≈ Confusion Regarding Self-Identity, Purpose, & Meaning in Life


≈ Grief


≈ Childhood/Trauma Issues

≈ Depression

≈ Anxiety

≈ Low Self-Esteem

≈ Relationship Issues

≈ School/Workplace Difficulties

≈ Life Transitions


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

≈ Infidelity

≈ Trust Issues


I provide affordable case consultation services for mental health professionals that are fully licensed or are seeking licensure.
