I am a licensed and board-certified bilingual Art Therapist with experience providing comprehensive and culturally sensitive mental health services to a vast population of individuals.

My therapeutic work includes working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and the LGBTQIA+ community. I work with individuals challenged with social, behavioral, attachment, abandonment issues, trauma, and all forms of abuse. I received my Masters in Art Therapy and Creativity Development from Pratt Institute. My therapeutic approach focuses on using art as a tool for mindfulness and client-centered therapy. I value and respect my client’s ethnicity, background, and belief systems, which I incorporate within a therapeutic and safe space.
