I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor providing art therapy along with traditional "talk" therapy addressing trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, parenting, and other challenges. I create a personalized approach (including utilization of techniques from art therapy, solution-focused, person centered, cognitive-behavioral, and Yalom therapeutic models) for the adolescents/adults served and empower you to develop the skills and confidence needed to address future issues. Art therapy provides the opportunity to further optimize possibilities for insight, processing, and developing new tools for expression of thoughts/ feelings in ways traditional therapy may not be able to bring about.
After working in the therapeutic field for the past 20 years, post-graduate studies, and in a variety of settings, I opened my own practice. I am married, have one son and two cats, all of which I adore and keep me busy.
