I believe in the power of therapy, which is most effective with a strong therapeutic relationship. I am an empathic therapist who provides a judgment-free zone that gives individuals a safe place to express their thoughts and feelings. I utilize a person-centered approach and adjust my interventions depending on the client’s needs, beliefs and desires. When it is appropriate, I help clients build assertiveness skills, create coping skills and understand the importance of self-care.
I incorporate concepts of cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, stress management and expressive therapies to help others improve their well-being. Besides using dance and movement, I am comfortable incorporating sand tray, music therapy, narrative therapy, art therapy and psychodrama.
I help clients cope with life challenges by helping to process their emotions and to identify solutions in a supportive environment in their path toward healing.

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

I specialize in helping others with grief. I created and led an intermodal expressive therapy bereavement group titled “Moving Through Grief,” which was extremely successful. As an individual who has experienced different types of loss, I see a great importance in the treatment of grief. During individual therapy sessions, I have used the empty chair technique to help victims of grief process their complex feelings toward a late loved one and assist them to work toward closure.
The current world pandemic has caused many different people to experience many losses including children, adolescents, young adults, adults and elders. I hope to continue to help people process their grief at this critical time.
