I am deeply relational. I build connections with others through sharing myself and offering my empathy. I have worked as a high school digital media educator for over twenty years in public and independent school settings. I love working with adolescents and young adults on issues related to identity development, managing anxiety and depression, impulse regulation and navigating the complexities of moving into adulthood. As a mental health practitioner with a background as an artist and arts-educator, I enjoy using a variety of creative methods to help clients explore their belief system, values, hopes and fears. Ultimately whether working with an individual or family system, I see counseling as a teaching relationship that should promote growth for all parties, myself included.
