If you and/or your child are looking to explore a new perspective, are feeling “stuck” in an area of your life, are motivated to make a change, or are just feeling like you could use some extra support, therapy might be a beneficial next step.

Finding the right therapist, someone you trust to support you and to challenge you as needed, is crucial for effective growth and positive outcomes. Therapy always works best when you find someone with whom you can build a therapeutic relationship to help motivate, set goals, and succeed.

As a licensed mental health counselor and art therapist, my style is motivational, strength-based, and solution-focused. It also balances humor and playfulness with supportive, challenging, and direct feedback. I believe that everyone has the inherent strength, ability, and resiliency to succeed in life, but may sometimes need additional support to uncover and engage those qualities within themselves.

I have found through my experience that engaging in the creative process can be not only therapeutic in and of itself, but on a deeper level it can also serve as a window into exploring feelings and thoughts that are not as easily discussed through verbal therapy.

 I will work with you and/or your child to find a style that works best with your needs and interests, and hope to empower you with the support you need to move forward in a positive direction.
