About My Clients

I want to help you get "unstuck" from your past and help you break free from harmful cycles from continuing to impact your life. Clients who come to me are tired of talk therapy and feel burnt out by rehashing the same patterns every week. Which is why I use a more attuned, holistic approach- so that we can dive deeper and make meaningful changes. I specialize in helping those with anxiety, life changes, relationship problems, trauma, cycle breaking, depression, and perinatal issues.

What I Specialize In

Words are clumsy. Sometimes, they don't feel sufficient enough to capture the true essence of your pain, triumphs, and experiences. Which is why I became an art therapist-because I believe that all parts of you matter and deserve to be expressed. Informed by Somatic Experiencing and Art Therapy, I draw on warmth, creativity, and compassionate curiosity to help you find color and meaning in your life again. Through your journey, I will walk alongside you while you find the courage to honor all the beautiful parts that make you whole, no matter what is on your plate. While Art Therapy is my specialty, it is not required for us to work together- You set the pace and I will meet you at your level of comfort.

Why I Became a Therapist

If you feel alone in your struggles, therapy can be a powerful resource. As a fellow human, I understand how frustrating and lonely it feels to be trapped in the same cycles day in and day out. Which is why my role in breaking those cycles is to give you a safe space to exhale your truth. I believe that suffering in silence often acts against your healing and keeps you feeling stuck. Let's work together to break your silence so that you can live an emotionally rich, purposeful, and colorful life. My priority as a therapist is for you to feel grounded enough to express your most authentic self so that you can truly blossom.
