I am a Registered Drama Therapist (#659) and Mental Health Consultant. I graduated with a Masters of Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Drama Therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies. I have experience working at a Counselling Enriched Educational Program (CEEP), Family Engagement Program and Autistic Spectrum Disorder Clinic where I have developed essential skills to offer the most effective and caring therapeutic experience in a safe and affirming environment. In order to ensure the most current, ethical and effective therapeutic approaches for my clients, I attend ongoing trainings and remain active in the field of psychology.
The skillful use of drama and the expressive arts in individual, couples, and group therapy is an effective, empowering method for problem-solving. While playful and often fun, it sparks insight — promoting ease, growth and well-being.
