My Story

I am a Board-Certified Art Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor, Reiki Practitioner, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Certified Intuition Coach. I am also trained in EMDR and somatic attachment therapy. My background involves working with children, adolescents, and adults who have faced traumatic childhoods; violence, abuse, domestic violence, loss/grief, divorce, etc.


I work from a humanistic and existentialist approach with a strong focus on trauma-informed care and safety within the self and the therapeutic relationship. I also emphasize attachment theory in my work. This makes me believe we are shaped by our upbringing and our environments which influence our present moment. Additionally, I ensure that safety and comfort are part of our work together. To make positive and sustainable changes, we must feel safe externally and internally.


When it is appropriate, I bring in other tools that could be utilized as coping strategies or just creative outlets to help in a difficult moment. Some of these tools could be crystals, oracle cards, guided meditation, Reiki, breathwork or tapping; and of course, creating art.
