In 2007 I was rear ended in a motor vehicle accident and suffered a brain injury. The lingering effects of the injury threatened my career, cognition and routine daily functioning. Through my journey obtaining treatment for the injury, I found EEG Neurofeedback. Coupled with support from others, neurofeedback has facilitated significant, positive change in brain function. I have been able to move past the injury and proceed with the career I previously thought had been destroyed, and I want to help others with treatments I believe in and from which I have experienced dramatic results. I am ...

I work primarily from an Multi and Inter-Modal Expressive Arts lens. I will invite you to get in touch with your creativity as we explore different mediums. Using an inter-modal approach means that we might move from one form of expression to another, perhaps even several times in the course of a session. Some processes we may explore include mixed-media experimentation, sandtray work, mindfulness practice, dreamwork, creative writing, movement, sound, play, and imaginative expression. Expressive Arts Therapy is a trauma-informed practice. It allows us to explore inner material as gently ...

Life transitions can be hard and can activate feelings of loss, pulling up “uncooked seeds” and causing grief and anxiety. Sometimes the difference between a life that feels energized and has flow, and a life that feels overwhelmingly hard (or even just lackluster) is a simple twist of perception. The word “simple“ is used intentionally, as many solutions are simple, but do not feel easy. We all go through times when life presents us with changes that cause anxiety, including stress related to grief and loss. Life’s transitions are more manageable with gentle, compassionate, and ...

As a person with multiple minoritized identities, I do my best to understand and empathize with the experiences of my clients. Though we all have different experiences, it can be very meaningful to know that your therapist has a deeper understanding of your experiences. I view my approach to therapy as client-centered, strengths-based, intersectional feminist, and fat liberationist. As a client-centered therapist, I will focus on your therapeutic goals and the best way to achieve them using your strengths. I view my work as walking beside you on your journey rather than leading the ...
