Personal Statement

I believe in the therapeutic and healing power of play and creativity for all ages–especially the little ones! It’s always my goal to create a safe, non-judgemental space for clients to be creative, artistic, and playful while also processing their concerns. I am a strong believer that everyone has innate strengths and that these strengths often show up through our hobbies and personal interests. If you love videogames, let’s learn how we can use that hobby to empower you! If you love DND, let’s embrace that creativity in therapy! Whatever your interests are, they’re welcome here because there’s never any shame in having fun!
