Counseling and art therapy for self-acceptance and creative transformation


My approach is practical and down to earth, engaging empathy, humor and your natural creative abilities to solve problems, have more authentic relationships with yourself and others, and cope with losses and transitions. I believe that empathic self-acceptance is the opening to change and self-empowerment. My theoretical orientation comes from attachment, trauma, and cognitive behavioral theories in addition to the extensive training I received in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

I provide counseling for adults coping with a broad spectrum of life situations. My areas of specialization are trauma and loss, life transitions, caregiving and aging, and body image concerns. Professional services for clinicians include supervision for LPC interns, art therapy supervision for ATR credentials and Art therapy board certification exam coaching. Learn more..
