What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

I believe the key component of the therapeutic relationship is mutual trust and the therapy space being used as a mirror you can see yourself in, in which you will have your strengths reflected back to you. For example, I like to explain that a therapist offers another lens to your experience, almost as if they can see your life through glasses with a more detailed prescription. It is necessary to trust that your therapist can witness your growth in great depth and guide you gently with care when you feel off track, even when it may feel like things are getting harder.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

My path to becoming a Therapist was influenced by finding a passion for making art throughout my adolescent and college years. What I noticed throughout my years of studies was that Art Education often focused on the outcome of the artwork, yet I was intrigued with how and why art, like music and other outlets of self expression are an emotional expression that evoked a variety of feelings in each and every one of us. My fascination with the complexity of our minds, the influence of our past experiences and mental health advocacy led me to pursuing a degree in Art Therapy from the School of Visual Arts. This opened up my deep passion for helping folks work through big emotions and move through change in their life. Additionally, through my Psychotherapy training I found great inspiration in seeing transformation evolve in my clients through talk therapy. I see that similar to creating artwork all of us are composed of such rich details and it is my pleasure to get to what makes you you and integrate this into a meaningful therapeutic relationship.

Is there any research-based work you’ve done that you found particularly exciting, and how has that informed your practice today?

I spent the last year researching the process of Attachment Informed Response Artwork. This involved using both my own artwork as a tool to study the individuality of my clients to best suit their needs, as well a deep dive into attachment patterns and how they are revealed both in talk therapy and art therapy sessions. I find it inspiring how my ability to self reflect can act as an additional vehicle for my clients transformation. It is a passion of mine as a clinician to continue this work as it both guides my understanding of my clients as well as their past experiences, and how their childhood experiences influence the circumstances and emotions that surface later in life. By working through these experiences in sessions I have witnessed tremendous growth, and greater self esteem in my clients. It excites me to see the foundation of my research evolve and offer life changing support to my clients.

Work History

As a therapist I specialize in both Substance Use Disorders and Womxn’s Hormonal Health and LGTBQIA++ individuals with intersectionality, race, privilege and anti-white supremacy at the forefront of my practice. I have experience working in a hospital’s Outpatient Substance Use within a community experiencing marginalization, where  many individuals were experiencing houselessness and high rates of substance use. I offered support first hand to people with substance use disorders largely due to the effects of structural oppression and failure due to systems put in place by White supremacy. While doing this work, I noticed there was a gap in treatment for young Womxn with substance use disorders, and that many were court-involved and either pregnant or young mothers. My deep research at the intersection of adolescent pregnancy, Substance Use Disorders and systemic oppression informed my approach to founding, facilitating, and developing the first Adolescent Womxn’s Recovery group at that hospital site to address the needs of this very specifically oppressed demographic. While research was essential to this process, close listening to the unique needs of my clients is what allowed for me to create and adapt a safe space for growth. I additionally have experience working in a Residential Boarding program that provides holistic and educational support to young Womxn from low income homes and families. I offered Art Therapy, Talk Therapy and Milieu therapy to these individuals while working from a trauma and racial informed lens. I currently work at a private practice Repose Therapy where I offer individual, group, Open Studio, family and couples therapy to folks with anxiety, depression, addictions and Womxn's Issues.
