Many of us can experience a sense of disconnection from ourselves and deeply held emotions, needs and desires as we navigate our way in the world.  This can lead to states of depression, anxiety, and other forms of emotional distress.  Through compassionate presence in a safe and supportive environment, I aim to assist clients in discovering and attending to their authentic strengths, needs and emotions, while integrating previously unresolved trauma and grief.

I primarily employ a humanistic approach to therapy, as guided by the needs of the client, and support building awareness and shifting limiting patterns.  As a trained art therapist, I also support clients in using the creative process as a means of self-expression and illuminating inner feelings, thoughts, and experiences.

I earned my master’s degree in Marital and Family Therapy with specialized training in Clinical Art Therapy at Loyola Marymount University.  I have also completed trainings in yoga, meditation and reiki, and maintain my own personal practices in these areas.
