Services I Offer
I provide individual therapy to adults. I also offer group therapy.
I provide therapy to help process history, manage trauma, relationships, grief, and loss.
Active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.
Group work provides a dynamic and supportive setting to learn, share, and work through sometimes difficult issues alongside others facing similar situations.
It takes time to recover and that ongoing response to trauma is normal. You are not forgetting the traumatic experience, but healing means having fewer symptoms that affect you less.
I come with a warm, supportive, and non-judgemental stance, working with your unique needs. I integrate creative therapies with mindfulness and other body approaches to help you heal creating a new future. It is possible to feel better and live a full and healthy life.
I am LGBTQIA+ affirming and adoption-competent, as an adoptee myself. También hablo tu idioma.
- Disenfranchised grief
- Adoption-related issues
- Trauma-related issues
- Attachment-related issues
- Trust issues
I treat anxiety and trauma with some of the newest mind-body technologies that retrain your brain, and I integrate creative therapies when words aren’t enough. I’ll create a tailored plan based on your needs and goals. I will help you re-balance your life and find ways to connect and find deeper meaning.
50-minute sessions are $150/session. I do not take insurance. I can provide you with a super bill, which you can submit to your insurance directly. Insurance companies reimburse depending on deductible and plan.
Art Therapy is an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.
Art Therapy, facilitated by a professional art therapist, effectively supports personal and relational treatment goals as well as community concerns. Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensory-motor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.
A mental health professional with clinical training on adoption issues understands adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive parent’s history (pre- and post-adoption traumas) needs to be taken into greater consideration when doing an adoption sensitive assessment.
The Best Things About Working With Me
I am an Associates-level MFT, therefore you gain the benefit of my insight AND that of my licensed supervisor (Jeanette Yoffe, LMFT #42758). Furthermore, I bring my work as an artist and as an adoptee to all that I do.
