and art therapy for self-acceptance and creative transformation
is practical and down to earth, engaging
empathy, humor and your natural creative abilities to solve
problems, have more authentic relationships with yourself
and others, and cope with losses and transitions. My theoretical
orientation comes from attachment, trauma, and cognitive behavioral
theories in addition to the foundational training I received
in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
I was born in Eugene, studied fine
art at Oregon State University, traveled and lived in
Spanish speaking countries, and exhibited professionally.
In 1995 I completed a masters degree in art therapy at
New York University and worked for approximately 15 years
at a variety of clinical settings including Queens Children's
Psychiatric Center, Interfaith Medical Center, the Jewish
Board of Family and Children's Services, and the NYC Public
Schools. I joined with many other professionals to provide
crisis intervention and ongoing support for 9-11 survivors.
As an adjunct instructor in the NYU graduate art therapy
program over ten years, I trained and supervised countless
emerging professionals. My interest in body image and
self-transformation resulted in a book on art therapy
and self-injury. Recently my path turned homeward, relocating
a private practice in New York City to Oregon City, Oregon.
I am a Licensed Professional
Counselor, Registered Board Certified Art Therapist, Licensed
