“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.

Depression & anxiety

Complex eating disorders: ED-DMT1 / diabulimia & vegan-positive

My theoretical orientation is eclectic with an emphasis on feminist theory, liberation psychologies, and intersectional justice theories. I strive to practice in a way that is compassionate and inclusive towards all.
