What led me to this?
If you want the gist of it without reading the elaborate story, just know that I have been through love and loss, the breakdown of my family, only to do it all over again and feeling way more injured the second try. Now I am living an empowered love-filled life that is better than I knew it could be.
I had to face some deep fears and get to the bottom of what was creating this pattern of loss, pain, and struggle in my life so I would NEVER repeat it again. I had to transform some of the stories and limiting beliefs and wounds that were in my way. I had to learn how to open my heart and learn the truth about how POWERFUL I really am. I have done it and SO CAN YOU!
As your therapist, I bring a breadth of both academic, career, and personal experience to support your mental health and well-being. I am a seeker and investigator by nature (1/3 HD profile) and study many traditional and non-traditional modalities of understanding the way personal reality and subjective experience are constructed. I combine what we know about the brain, creative process, trauma, quantum physics, and energy principles to support your discovery of self and to create the life and relationships you desire.
I become your confidante, guide, and way-seer. I find your blind spots and we build a beautiful supportive mutual relationship where you understand and feel my heart which allows me to intuitively feel yours so I can help you reflect and know yourself in a deeply intimate way.
My approach is customized to your unique path. I am solutions and future-focused and use targeted approaches to address any roadblocks, cycles, and disheartening experiences that prevent you from feeling like you are living what you are truly made of.
I am a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in the state of New York and hold a Master's Degree in Art Therapy and Creativity Development from Pratt Institute. With over a decade of clinical experience, I have worked with hundreds of people to manage their mental health, address root causes, discover their dreams, express themselves more fully, transform the aspects of their lives that didn't serve them, and take action to create real and lasting change.
My career experience ranges from residential and acute inpatient psychiatric care with adults, highly targeted attachment treatment with children, and outpatient clinical settings. My personal experience has taught me what it takes to transform codependency, release the victim identity, repair attachment wounds, end self-abandonment & relational breakdowns, and access the spiritual connection and wisdom that we all are innately capable of.
