Experience

“Art is a wound turned into light.”  Georges Braque 

Since 2013, I’ve helped my clients break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life. 

I have experience working with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, domestic violence, sexual abuse, shame, self-esteem issues, relationship issues such as partner betrayal, narcissistic abuse, spiritual abuse, grief and loss.  I specialize in women's issues, life transitions, trauma, PTSD utilizing expressive arts with an integrated approach addressing mind, body, & spirit. 

When asking for help, we need to be treated non-judgmentally. We all need support to overcome life's challenges. Moreover, we all need someone that listens compassionately and empathetically. I respect my clients and their unique backgrounds, recognizing that people come from many different ethnic, religious, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
