I am a licensed Psychotherapist – Marriage and Family Therapist and Art Therapist.

Currently I am completing my Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with Specialization in Somatic Studies. My research focuses on the lived experience of the body and image in processes of psychological growth and healing.

I have a Master of Arts in Depth Psychology with Specialization in Somatic Studies, and a Master of Arts in Marital and Family Therapy with Specialization in Clinical Art Therapy.

I trust in the connection between life, art, and the intelligence of the body. My approach is grounded on Jungian depth psychology. I anchor the process of therapy on the language of creative expressive arts, sand-play, and body centered modalities.
