As a psychotherapist and Expressive therapist, I believe creativity is key for your healing, new awareness, and more adaptive actions. Insights from role playing may happen that were previously elusive. Art therapy may be more gentle than talking.  

My Mission

As a therapist for over 20 years, I’ve worked with individuals, couples, families in a variety of settings. I work with culturally Deaf people using ASL. I am gay and queer positive.

In the Expressive therapy, verbal and nonverbal communication flows from one modality to another. This process is key to engaging us in the here and now.
