Biographical Info I grew up in the south and attended college there. I received a degree in Theatre Arts and I minored in Education. After graduation, I taught theatre in four of the five boroughs in New York City and did some acting along the way. I also taught preschool and pursued a Master's in Early Childhood Education. After years of parent meetings that seemed a lot like therapy, I realized psychology was the career I had been seeking all those years. I love the work I get to be a part of as a therapist. When you work with me you get the benefit of my diverse professional experience which began over twenty years ago.

Short DescriptionWhat Do I Offer? / How Might We Work Together? As an LMFT trained and practiced in mindfulness and expressive arts, I rely on a variety of creative interventions and modalities to support you in beginning or continuing your healing process. As an educator, therapist, and mindfulness-based practitioner, I approach client and group work with a humanist and client-centered focus. While I draw on a vast range of experience, I will not give you frequent advice or tell you what to do. What I will seek to do is support you as you explore and discover ways to live your life more fully and freely.
Description Who Do I Work With? I welcome a range of clients with a focus on parents, teens, and individuals seeking support with relationship issues. I am particularly welcoming of queer and gender non-conforming clients. When working with parents, I emphasize connection before correction. I encourage focusing on forms of positive discipline that emphasize celebrating successes and limiting the use of the punishment/reward paradigm.
