M.A. Clinical Art Psychotherapist
We have entered a strange time together in this pandemic. I have moved my practice to Telehealth only at this time. I am still accepting new clients. I can imagine it is beginning to get more challenging in those interpersonal relationships, albeit with your partner, your children, or yourself! Let me be with you in this ever changing time, where days feel like weeks and weeks feel like years. Let me help hold some of this burden for you.
I am committed to working with humans at all levels of development who need a nurturing and supportive environment on their therapeutic journey.
The office is closed for in-person appointments now as we navigate everyone's health & safety. Telehealth is available!
Your path together is designed to help you have the right beginning so that you can flourish and thrive in your life. She works primarily with people who desire to work in the long term, intensive, deep areas – getting to the core of your problems and balancing that with your strengths, with or without the use of art. Most patients come wanting more than just temporary symptomatic changes and are longing for deeper connections in their relationships with others and themselves.
A sex-positive expressive art therapist who works with people of all kinds.
I grew up on the Mendocino coast with artistic parents—my mother is a professional painter and musician, and my father is a talented jazz pianist. My household was constantly full of interactive creativity and interesting talent. I used art, photography, theater arts, and choir to flourish through my childhood and adolescence. I graduated from California State University, Sacramento, with a Bachelors degree in Child Development. I was on my way to become a teacher when I discovered art therapy. Art therapy intrigued me because it took what I was currently studying, children and families, and combined it with my passion for artistic expression. I set out to study and found a prestigious school in Belmont, California, called Notre Dame de Namur University. NDNU is one of two schools in California that offers an accredited degree in Marriage Family Therapy and Art Psychotherapy. Learning about art therapy felt like finding my home.
In addition to being a therapist in my private practice, I supervise MFT Associates, volunteer in my children's Waldorf classes, I am a 5Rhythms Teacher-in-Training, & offer workshops that use dancing, art making, and singing. I try to dance & make art everyday as part of my dedication to my own soul and healing journey.
