Integrative Arts Psychotherapist

My experience includes working with those who experience anxiety, depression, anger, shame, loneliness, difficulties with food and relationships, survivors of sexual abuse, chronic fatigue syndrome, bipolar disorder, ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, personality disorders, PTSD, and disordered eating.
Therapies Provided

Sometimes the experience of life causes our innate creativity to become flattened, stifled or stuck. Patterns repeat; we may use people, places and things to numb and avoid painful feelings that we can’t find words for.

My therapeutic approach is tailored to meet an individual client’s unique needs.

I am trained to weave traditional talking therapies, such as Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and psychodynamic therapies with up-to-date neuroscientific research, alongside the arts to empower clients to use their creative agency to establish more fulfilling lives for themselves.

Together, we work through their emotional pain, naming and processing feelings and memories, and safely locating and integrating emotions within the body. The arts can offer an essential component in finding ways to communicate and to be in relationship.

Mediums Used

My preference is to work on Zoom or in person.


Masters in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy and an Advanced Diploma in the Therapeutic and Educational Application of the Arts.
