Profile
“Through my training and my own therapeutic journey, I’ve learned that self-understanding and expression are only parts of the process; another challenging and exciting part of the work is learning to live in ways that are authentic and freeing.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist?
I began my career in therapeutic roles at nonprofit agencies, working with individuals across a broad demographic of ages and diagnoses. In these positions, I often worked with both groups and individuals to help them grow through challenging life transitions, cognitive distress, and systematic oppression. Through my training and my own therapeutic journey, I’ve learned that self-understanding and expression are only parts of the process; another challenging and exciting part of the work is learning to live in ways that are authentic and freeing. As a therapist, it’s an honor to join others as they find their own creative methods to grow in self-discovery, self-compassion, and, ultimately, self-love.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work primarily with clients seeking to address the challenges that come from anxiety, depression, relationships, and unexpected life transitions. In my practice, I use a variety of interventions to meet your needs, but I mainly work from an attachment-based approach. This means I’ll help you find creative ways to examine your relationships with yourself and others to help you make better sense of your own inner voice, build self-compassion, and relate in authentic ways to the world around you. Regardless of why you're looking for therapy, I believe you're in the exact space you need to be to grow. I will work with you to provide psychoeducation, tools to increase regulation, and mindfulness. Most importantly, I’ll provide a compassionate and curious perspective as we work together to help you build security, insight, and authenticity.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I’m excited by the increased accessibility that telehealth offers the mental health community and the ways this shift in modality will shape the field’s evolution. Virtual platforms provide flexible and sometimes gentler pathways for connection that can make the decision to see a therapist easier. It’s been amazing to see how the availability of online therapy has allowed more people the time and resources to care for their emotional wellness. It’s my hope that this growth continually challenges the mental health field to evolve in ways that reflect the need to offer inclusive, holistic, and integrative care.
