About Me

I specialize in working with teens and adults who feel inhibited by anxiety or depression and want to let their true selves shine through. As a registered Drama Therapist, (RDT) and a certified Hakomi Therapist (CHT), I use creative, mindful, action along with Attachment Focused EMDR to help heal and transform past trauma. Along with my private practice, I teach Shakespeare and therapeutic theatre at San Quentin prison.
