Along the way, I will offer observations, reflections, and suggestions in order to help facilitate this process. I strive to create a collaborative, open, and honest dynamic in which feedback is not only always welcome, but strongly encouraged.
I have been told that my personality is marked by humor, playfulness, compassion, and dedication. These characteristics shape my therapeutic approach.

My sense of compassion and dedication keeps me strongly connected to all of my clients; after all, therapeutic work happens in relationship!

After graduating with my MA in Drama Therapy from NYU, I spent two years working as a creative arts therapist at The Animation Project, a non-profit workforce development program that utilizes digital art technology to promote therapeutic growth.

In addition to continuing my work with Dwellness, I am thrilled to now be practicing privately, specializing in providing a safe, body-positive, and sex-positive space for individuals of all sexual orientations and genders.
