LMFT, MA in Counseling Psychology: Expressive Arts Therapy Specialization
I love working with college students and have a passion for using the arts to support people on their journey to self-empowerment. I specialize in working with young adults from a variety of different backgrounds, including people from the LGBTQIA+ community, immigrants and ethnically diverse populations, and people with disabilities, among others. Throughout my career in the healing professions, I've integrated expressive arts therapy in my work, and find it immensely transformative for my clients.
How I Work With Students
I use a collaborative approach with students, assisting them to identify their own inner resources and inherent strengths with a touch of creativity. A holistic lens is an integral part of how I help students, considering each person's unique sociocultural makeup, including their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious beliefs, age, and physical ability, among others. Together, we discover how these factors affect people's behavior, core beliefs, identity, social factors, and wellbeing. I am down to earth, compassionate, caring, and find great joy as a co-creator in my clients' personal growth.
