Providing collaborative and empathetic psychotherapeutic treatment, with a focus on helping creative adults as well as new mothers and fathers.
Many adults struggle with major life transitions and benefit from the support of a therapist to overcome any roadblocks that impede their growth and fulfillment. I provide sensitive, non-judgmental treatment and will support and challenge you to achieve your goals and dreams.
I have specialized training and board-certification in art therapy, which is an extraordinarily healing process that uses images to express thoughts and feelings that are hard to put in words. I additionally have extensive experience working with new parents, teaching Parent & Me classes and leading groups for new mothers. As a therapist, I am collaborative, empathetic, honest, practical, and real.
I offer a complimentary telephone consultation to discuss your needs and determine whether my approach is the right fit for you.

Areas of Practice
In therapy, I focus on creating a safe and trusting relationship as a base from which we will explore your needs, fears, and desires. My approach incorporates elements of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and post-modern theories. I will help you to identify tools and techniques to develop your inner strengths and resources.
"A picture is worth a thousand words." Art therapy invites you to express experiences and feelings through visual, tangible images. No artistic skill is needed. Art therapy is widely used in schools, hospitals, and private practices, and its effectiveness has been demonstrated through research and clinical experience.
support for new parents
I have extensive experience supporting mothers and fathers of babies and young children. I provide treatment for post-partum depression and anxiety, relationship challenges after baby, and development of a new parent identity, with awareness and education about baby development. I facilitate Parent & Me groups through the Pump Station & Nurtury.
