Hello and Welcome!

I'm so glad you found me. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Board Certified-Dance/Movement Therapist, skilled in using traditional mental health therapy, EMDR, expressive arts therapy, and dance/movement therapy with diverse populations. My therapeutic work is client-centered, strength-based, solution-focused, and emphasizes the mind-body connection. I am experienced in working with adolescents, and adults. I specialize in helping individuals with a range of issues including trauma, co-occurring substance use, mood, interpersonal relationships, life transitions, self-esteem, and more. I am also an LGBTQIA+ affirming and supportive therapist, with a special interest in helping people live authentically and solidify their confidence in their identities. My approach to therapy is to engage the whole person in order to integrate the mind and body. Movement in therapy can range from focusing on breath to self-lead movement expression, and can be used with any age and ability. Art, music, voice, drama, storytelling, and play can also be utilized in order to elicit additional forms of self-expression. Artistic expression is used to deepen the therapeutic work through the creative process. I view my clients holistically and utilize the knowledge I gain regarding their life history and their social atmosphere to guide them in therapy. I work collaboratively with my clients to make meaningful change, respecting my clients’ individuality and autonomy. I am excited to be able to support you along your journey.
