About My Clients

Thinking about taking action toward your mental and emotional well-being? Unsure where to start?Perhaps, you desire an alternative or additional method to process current or past challenges. Some days you may feel like giving up and need a way to externalize your fear, worry, or frustration. Maybe you're wanting to take a big risk or strengthen some of those difficult areas in your life. You try to keep going, but it's difficult. I invite you to art therapy. Lets Make Room for Your Crown!

My Background and Approach

From time to time, you may hear me say Make Room for Your Crown. I believe that individuals are all intrinsically creative, and through accessible art experiences, one can deepen their understanding of choices, challenges, and capabilities without judgment. I am trained to integrate psychotherapy with art-making and/or evidence-based practices such as (EFT, SFBT, Jungian, & Motivational Interviewing). If words alone cannot fully capture what you are experiencing, I offer art therapy as a tool for greater awareness. Though versed in various therapies, my core practice is rooted in narrative change, truth-telling, racial healing, and transformation. Over the past 7 years, I have been fortunate to build a diverse and adaptable skill set. My most recent work involved helping teens and adults manage challenges such as anxiety, depression, grief, negative self image, and substance use. I will remain curious, engaged, and committed to providing a safe experience for you to thrive.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in strengths-based care, which spends more time creating space to explore your assets to this world vs your shortcomings. I believe that you are an agent in reframing, redefining, and restoring what matters to you and those around you. I believe that healing should be experienced collectively and can be the result of building a healthy identity. I also realize the lack of accessible resources and culturally relevant practices available for minoritized communities. I remember how hard it was to find someone who looked like me, who welcomed my cultural experiences, and who was patient enough to get to my core. It was through this experience that I not only wanted to become an advocate but bring awareness to these issues and act on it. Harnessing my knowledge and skills in creative execution, relationship building, community connection, and innovation, I bring the pineapple to the table to explore our inner core.
