 Practice Owner, Psychotherapist & Art Therapist

A Bit About Me:


After graduating with a Master's degree in Art Therapy from SAIC in 2013; I worked in diverse settings (community mental health, in-patient, residential, college counseling) prior to starting my own practice in Jan. 2019. 


Before returning to school for my graduate degree, I was a working artist and previously graduated with a BFA in Ceramics from Alfred University. Art is in my DNA! Outside of creating, I also enjoy reading & studying tarot, studying astrology & spending time with my two cats Walter & Lily. 


As a Queer therapist living with disabilities, I've committed my clinical practice & the expansion of my business to increasing the inclusivity of the profession: For both clients and clinicians alike.

Therapy Practices I Regularly Use:

  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)
  • Art Therapy 
  • Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy
    •  For our work together to be effective, I find it critical to identify, accept, and explore reality-based ways to cope with systemic issues and oppression that impact folx.
  • Certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD. I adapt CPT to fit within a trauma-informed approach & the foundational values I practice from.
    • CPT is a short-term, structured & evidence based therapy for PTSD; typically completed in 12 sessions. It has been surprisingly effective in my experience facilitating this with clients.
