Licensed Professional Counselor

Registered & Board Certified Art Therapist

Certified Clinical Trauma Professional

I believe everyone possesses a vital spark that can be uncovered, rediscovered, and empowered.  Sometimes life experiences can be hindered when overshadowed by distressful challenges where it can be difficult to cope. 

Everyone’s journey is unique and valuable. In a secure and non-judgmental space, I will provide empathetic support for you to understand and explore these challenges to discover your own journey for overall wellness. 

I apply a person-centered and holistic approach through verbal and non-verbal evidence based modalities to process intrusive thoughts and emotional responses.  Mindfulness and grounding techniques can be implemented to assist in regulating and coping with strong emotions that arise in daily living.  When it is difficult to find words to express thoughts and feelings, I offer Art Therapy to bridge the verbal with the non-verbal to reveal a deeper understanding of your lived experiences. 

During our time together...

~I am present for you to share your truth and be heard and seen in a non-judgmental way.

~I will provide space so that you realize you have choices.  I will offer you suggestions and you choose changes that will best fit in your daily life. 

~I will be a guide so that you learn to notice feelings and thoughts toward regulating the nervous system that bring on strong emotions.

~I will be human along with you and acknowledge we are all human doing the best we can.
