About me

I am a perinatal mental health certified art psychotherapist supporting those who identify as caregivers in cultivating creative resilience. My psychotherapy approach is grounded in principles of cultural humility, humanism, and the healing power of an empathic creative process. I believe that the act of creating something——in any form——with embodied, full presence can combat burnout and stress symptoms, while engaging the symbolism within a work of art or art-making process can lead to insight into deeper conflict or sometimes hidden issues through the safe distance of metaphor. Whether it's through verbal psychotherapy, an active creative process, or combination of the two, the lens through which we explore concerns is focused on self discovery, healing, and empowerment.
