About me

I am an experienced Drama Therapist who is passionate in her work with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, and eating disorders.

“Being human is not hard because you’re doing it wrong, it’s hard because you’re doing it right” - Glennon Doyle

Being human in today’s world can be overwhelming. Given daily pressures from all of our personal and professional responsibilities and the unstable nature of our lives, it becomes easy to feel consumed with anxiety, worry, anger and frustration, or even numbness. Entering therapy is taking a GIANT first step in what can feel like a vulnerable journey. And I’m happy to wade into the swampland of the soul with you as we co-create a safe and trusting environment. My role is to act as your guide in exploring your past and present with empathy to help you to develop insight, feel entitled to all of your feelings, and establish a more empowered future for yourself.

Our therapeutic relationship will be a collaborative approach. We’ll start by meeting you where you’re at and getting to know your strengths and struggles, and what you want to get out of therapy. My style is warm, supportive, nonjudgmental, and playful, but I will challenge you when the time is right. I’m a drama therapist, but don’t be afraid! I practice traditional talk therapy, while I use my background to inform my thinking and interventions. As our journey progresses, I may present you with an opportunity to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in new creative ways, but this is always optional!

My experience includes working with substance use disorders, autism spectrum disorder, mental illness, anxiety, depression, trauma, and eating disorders. During our work together, my goal is to help you address self-destructive thoughts and behaviors in order to develop healthier coping tools and strengthen self-esteem, so you can live your best life!
