About My Clients

I love working with people who are interested in exploring the challenges they're facing at work, school, or in relationships in an active and experiential way using the expressive arts. Most of my clients are students, working professionals, or parents who have flexible schedules as I only offer morning appointments.

My Background and Approach

I aim to give you a sense of agency in therapy and in life by collaborating with you to define your own goals based on what's important to you. I offer an eclectic and trauma-informed approach that draws upon my training in expressive therapies and many other approaches to helping people. Working through the arts, I try to help you discover and shift patterns that might be keeping you stuck, increase your flexibility in places you might be too rigid, add structure and break things down if you're feeling overwhelmed, find support where you're holding more than you can carry... and hopefully help you be able to do the things that are hard for you to do now.

Why I Became a Therapist

I was a dancer growing up, and I've always been interested in and moved by art, music, dance, and theater. During my experience at college, I became aware of the psychological benefits of participating in creative work and the ways modern society creates an unfortunate separation of "creativity" from "regular life" that robs people of opportunities for the kinds of creative expression that help us feel like humans and not robots. I wanted to help people because I've been through tough times and was very lucky to receive support from other people. I chose to become an expressive therapist because sometimes words are hard, and there are other ways to say it :)
