Approach

Some of the goals of art therapy are to manage stress, increase
communication and connection, improve relationships and to
develop a better understanding of self and others.

My psychotherapy approach is grounded in principles of mindfulness, interpersonal psychotherapy, humanism, and the healing power of the creative process. With 15 years of clinical experience in various treatment settings, in both the public and private sectors, I am passionate about providing support for those in personal and professional care-taking roles. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community and a Queer parent I have a special focus on adolescent health and their families using creative clinical approaches. I follow G.L.A.M. the Gender and Life Affirming Model in my practice. I enjoy wearing many hats — including that of clinician, supervisor, consultant/contractor, artist, educator, workshop facilitator, spouse and mother.
