When we access our creativity, we access our health. Circumstances can cause us to feel stuck, shut down, and/or disconnected. When we are ready to step into the healing stage during our more challenging moments, our creativity can be the rock, the roots, and the bridge to recovery. The therapeutic space serves as a supportive place of non-judgment where you can explore, express, create, and reconnect.
Licensed Creative Arts Therapist
My work is rooted in the belief that as a client you are the expert on you, and the therapeutic process is a co-created experience. I work in collaboration with my clients to implement a treatment structure and process that supports their chosen treatment goals.
I received my Master's Degree in Drama Therapy from New York University where I was a recipient of the Lilah Hilliard Fisher Scholarship for academic excellence, professionalism and leadership. My training and work experience has afforded me the opportunity to work with a variety of age ranges and populations. I have presented my work, research and collaborations at both the regional and national conferences for the North American Drama Therapy Association. I am passionate about my work and committed to the pursuit of helping individuals and communities experience healing through drama therapeutic processes.

Participants will explore the impact of assumptions, biases and stereotypes on individuals, relationships and communities. Didactic and experiential processes will be employed to assist participants in identifying the many ways assumptions and biases are internalized and how they impact an individual’s ability to connect or not connect with others.
The roles that we play in our lives are influenced, impacted, and activated by our relationships. These relationships can be to: people, power/privilege, environments, and other factors. This workshop explores how identity performs in relationship.
