I have been trained extensively in Expressive Arts Therapy through California Institute of Integral Studies teachers within the Art of Health and Healing program, a medical and county systems internship program integrating the use of movement arts, poetry, visual art, free writing, and embodied practices.
At California Institute of Integral Studies I have trained extensively in Humanistic-Existential approaches to therapy, specifically client-centered and Gestalt approaches.
In work, I approach therapy from an intersectional and integrative perspective, bringing awareness to how varying levels of identity such as race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, and ability and existing within a cisheteropatriarchal system impacts mental health.
My approach is unique to each person yet with a similar thread: that is, to ultimately help to unveil the wisdom that is already within you. I work with individuals, couples and groups within a framework of Transpersonal, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, Humanistic-Existential, Body-Oriented, and Expressive Art approaches to psychotherapy.
