“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.”
— Maya Angelou
Managing and solving problems in life requires creativity and confidence. Art therapy promotes creative problem solving skills, can help you find meaning in the challenges you face, improves confidence, and fosters healing, personal growth, and overall wellness. Art therapy can be effective regardless of previous art-making experience, and it is a rich alternative to traditional talk therapy. Using a combination of art therapy, expressive therapies, and discussion, my approach is designed to meet your individualized needs and goals for therapy.

Eating disorders, body image distress & diabulimia
Medical diagnosis distress (diabetes, cancer & other illness or disability)
Grief, trauma & companion animal loss
Adolescent & young adult issues
Depression & anxiety
Social justice distress & activist support
I am a Registered Board Certified Art Therapist and Pennsylvania Licensed Professional Counselor providing services to youth and adults. I offer individual therapy, small group therapy, and workshops at my office in Philadelphia. My theoretical orientation is eclectic, informed by liberation psychologies, and intersectional justice theories. I strive to practice in a way that is compassionate and inclusive towards all. Previous clients have expressed that they most valued my authenticity, sense of humor, frankness, patience, accessibility, and creativity.
