As an artist-therapist and a believer that therapy is a space where therapist and client create together, I invite into therapy what is spoken as well as what is felt, created, dreamed, and symbolized. I enjoy working with clients who wish to see lasting change through engaging the underlying causes of unwanted thoughts, behaviors, or anxieties.
I value collaborating with clients to create the unique therapy space they need in order to grow. My work draws from Narrative Therapy, Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT), Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, & Jungian Psychology models. My practice sometimes includes movement, play, and sensory experience in addition to traditional talk therapy.
I am radically body positive and I deeply affirm that every single body has the right to thrive, be celebrated, and take up space. I practice from a Health at Every Size lens.
