As a Board-Certified Art Therapist and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have experience working with adolescents and adults facing a variety of issues, including: anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, life transitions, difficulties in relationships, and issues related to race, gender, and sexual identity. I provide a supportive, collaborative, and compassionate atmosphere to help people identify patterns of behavior, increase self-awareness, and enact meaningful changes in their lives.

I believe that art provides a useful mode of expression and insight when experiences and emotions are difficult to verbalize and I integrate art therapy into my work with clients who are interested in using the creative process to gain insight into their experiences.

My practice is also informed by feminist therapy principles, including: understanding an individual's issues within cultural and social contexts; valuing diverse perspectives; focusing on an individual's strengths; recognizing all forms of oppression; and a commitment to social justice.
