My skills are highlighted by the many years I
have worked in a variety of settings, to
include hospitals, clinics, and schools. I provided a referral service with agencies specializing in
foster care children who had been sexually
abused, and a non-profit agency specializing in teen mothers who were able to come to my
office. I expanded my practice to include
providing psychotherapy services in the home
for patients unable to travel. I have been in
private practice for 30 years and continue to
offer therapy to children, adolescents, adults,
mother-baby pairs and couples. I incorporate
art psychotherapy into all of those services
when needed and requested.

Why The Creative Process
- Creative Process
The creative process includes all senses. This
is an important part of my work. Seeing, feeling, sensing, listening, visualizing, through
the use of art making, writing, using sound and movement in natural ways.
I am trained in creativity development,
psychoanalytic psychotherapy, child and
adolescent psychotherapy, couples
psychotherapy, and mindfulness.
Focusing on one’s creativity is not just art
making. It is bringing into being one’s ability to have a creative life. I understand having a
creative life to mean holding an interest in
one’s self and others, and being open to new
ways of seeing oneself and the world. It is
about finding small moments in which to
embrace. It is about utilizing these moments
and expanding them to include more and more of your life.
