My mission is to support and empower people of all ages, identities and backgrounds as they journey
through the ups and downs of life. My practice integrates traditional counseling and creative art therapy
to facilitate expression, awareness and growth beyond the limits of language alone. My specialization is
in anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief and loss, working primarily with adults, but I also have
experience working with kids and teens.
I use an integrative practice, drawing primarily from person-centered and cognitive-behavioral
approaches, as well as dialectical behavioral therapy and existential approaches. I endeavor to
understand and honor each client's experience and worldview and adapt my approach to best meet
their needs within a safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. My ultimate goal is to help
clients develop the skills, awareness and knowledge necessary for them to solve their present and future
challenges on their own.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and International Studies from the University of Michigan
and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Art Therapy from Wayne State University.
I believe that every individual is worthy of compassion and respect and I am honored to walk alongside
each person through their unique journeys and experiences.
