I am honored to walk alongside you on your journey to deeper self-awareness, empowerment, and trust. I believe that healing begins with an empathic relationship and co-creating a therapeutic space that feels safe. From this common ground, we can then explore your inner landscape in order to identify unhealthy relational patterns, locate your needs and ultimately develop self-trust. As a contemplative art therapist, I also emphasize creative expression, experiential process, and spirituality as a means of self-discovery. I am particularly passionate about working with clients experiencing anxiety, ADHD, grief, relationship issues, PTSD, and women’s issues.

I became an Art Therapist in Colorado because I have always loved supporting others and believe in the healing power of the creative process. As a young adult, I found myself enveloped by anxious thoughts, disconnected from my body, and stuck in unhealthy relational patterns. After setting a final boundary in a harmful romantic relationship, I found my way to therapy and began emotional healing. I also began to reconnect to my creative process, which supported me in rediscovering my identity and strengthening my capacity to trust myself.
I followed the thread of healing to Naropa University where I pursued a master’s degree in Transpersonal Art Therapy. During my time in graduate school, I cultivated the art of slowness and discovered deeper embodiment which supported me in integrating my own emotional healing. I then had the opportunity to work at a community clinic where I supported clients from diverse backgrounds in exploring their emotional landscapes and witnessed the transformational power of art therapy firsthand.
I am grounded in relational-cultural theory, which is a social justice-oriented and person-centered approach that emphasizes mutually empathic relating as a way to grow. Additionally, I utilize a myriad of other frameworks including art therapy, somatic awareness, and emotion-focused techniques. It’s important to note that you do not have to be an artist or have any background in art to do art therapy as it is for everyone. In the therapy session, I offer many different tools to support the development of self-awareness such as art processes, tracking bodily sensations, and mindfulness to meet you exactly where you are.
