I believe that through creativity, connections with ourselves, relationships with others, and laughter, everyone can find their own balanced healthy life. Together, we will take a practical holistic approach to identify what is working for you and what is no longer useful.
Your past influences who you are today, so we’ll work through old thoughts and integrate new patterns into the present. I use my intuitive empathy to be a compassionate therapist who also holds you accountable. I want to collaborate with you on your goals so you can live the life you want!
I obtained my undergraduate degree from UC Santa Cruz, in the History of Art and Visual Culture and Psychology. Then I began studying to become an Art Therapist and Marriage and Family Therapist at Phillips Graduate Institute in Chatsworth, California.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, Nevada, and Texas. I am also nationally a Registered Art Therapist and I am a Clinical Supervisor. I have worked in a private practice, counseling centers, intensive outpatient programs, and partial hospitalization programs.
I am a completely virtual therapist! I believe that virtual therapy is just as beneficial as in-person therapy. The only difference is that it takes a bit longer for us to get to know each other and for me to read smaller body language cues. Telehealth is confidential, HIPAA compliant, and an easy commute!
Meet My Therapy Animals Oliver and Poppy!
Animals are proven to decrease stress levels and their unconditional love allows us to show up for them being the absolute best versions of ourselves. Oliver is very thoughtful and anxious (I am his service human) and Poppy is smaller but packs a punch as a cuddly menace. You will probably see them sleeping and playing in the background and thanks to great background noise cancelling headphones, you won’t hear them at all!
