Services I Offer
I mainly provide individual therapy to children 6+, tweens, teens, and adults, but I also provide couples and family therapy as well as groups.
I provide therapy to help process history, manage trauma, relationships, grief, and loss.
Active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.
Group work provides a dynamic and supportive setting to learn, share, and work through sometimes difficult issues alongside others facing similar situations.
I help families to build/reinforce attachment through treatment.
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.

- MHN | Health Net
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.
The Best Things About Working With Me
I am an Associates-level MFT, therefore you gain the benefit of my insight AND that of my licensed supervisors (José Cabrera, LMFT #45195, ATR-BC & Jeanette Yoffe, LMFT #42758). Additionally, I work with an Art Therapy Supervisor (see José), where you will also benefit from his knowledge and experience. Lastly, I bring my work as an artist and as an adoptee to all that I do.
