About me

No two people are alike and neither is my approach, therefore, I work eclectically fusing narrative, somatic, experiential, and mindfulness in my practice. I am also an art therapist and enjoy working with clients who want to dig deeper through creative ways when words are not enough. I am adoption competent and an adoptee myself, and I am also LGBTQ+ affirming.

Art Therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.

Art Therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensory-motor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.

A mental health professional with clinical training on adoption issues understands adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive parent’s history (pre- and post-adoption traumas) needs to be taken into greater consideration when doing an adoption sensitive assessment.
