Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My Personal Approach to counseling is grounded in both cognitive behavioral therapy and expressive arts therapy such as Writing, Play Therapy (including Sand Tray), Personal Narratives and Dream Work. I also follow a Strengths-Based model with Youth and Families, incorporating Mindfulness Techniques assisting families to construct mindful approaches to family communications. My personal focus is working with children, adolescents and families. I offer mindful-parenting workshops and groups for teens as well as writing workshops for adolescents and women interested in cultivating more self-awareness through writing. For current group details or to read my latest blog posts visit: I have over six years of experience working with children and adolescents of varied backgrounds. I have worked at both public and private schools. I am experienced with IEP's, behavior plans & social-emotional learning. I work with teenagers who have experienced grief, trauma, suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety and or ADHD. My services are multi-cultural aware and welcoming to LGBTQ+ clients and families. I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology with a Specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy. I have a long-standing meditation practice which positively informs my psychotherapy practice. I'm interested in Jungian Psychology and I enjoy working with dreams and interpreting non-ordinary experiences.
