As an introvert who thrives on one-on-one communication, individual counseling is a perfect fit for my personality. I am also an information gatherer and artist which influences my approach in that I find both the logical/ left brain and the right brain creative/ expressive approach appealing.
My approach is a creative one that focuses on solution-focused, strength-based, and expressive techniques. Respect for the individual and their self-expression is of the utmost importance to me. We can make art together or talk. I am very flexible with my approach and listen to my clients' needs.
One insight that became clear in my work with clients is that grief/ loss comes in many forms beyond the loss or death or a loved one. It can be the loss of socialization, a relationship from a break up or friendship ending, or moving to a new place. This insight guides my approach by talking about the stages of grief including the sixth stage, finding meaning.

I have Master’s degrees in Clinical Psychology and Art Therapy. My interest in Art Therapy began in 2010 during my first internship and found it helpful for processing emotions like depression, anxiety, and grief. Over the past 10 years I have worked in a variety of settings including schools and hospitals with individuals living with mood disorders and/ or who are coping with life transitions.
