Professional Approach and Services
As a licensed psychologist and registered expressive arts therapist (REAT) in my private practice, I offer therapy sessions rooted in Jungian-oriented Expressive Arts Therapy to individuals, children and couples. Through the use of arts and personal expression we are able to access emotions in a deep and profound way, to heal trauma and to tap into the meaning and creativity of life. By integrating the body, arts and the soul, we work towards developing fuller, more meaningful lives. These psychotherapy sessions can be used to address a variety of underlying issues.
- Supervision and Consultation
My approach to supervision is one strongly grounded in the theory and practice of Expressive Arts Therapy and Jungian Psychology. Both my individual and group supervision seeks to use art as the lens through which intuition and creativity can be brought forth.
- Professional and Public Workshops
Programs offered to the general public as well as professional training, workshops, consultation and academic courses programs interweave my interests in expressive arts therapy, Jungian thought, culture, spirituality, women’s development and mentoring.
I am a licensed psychologist with a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and a registered expressive arts therapist (REAT). Starting in Philadelphia and now in San Francisco, I have maintained an active private practice for 30 years and have also been teaching for 28 years, at such institutions as The University of New Jersey, California Institute of Integral Studies, Institute for Transpersonal Psychology, JFK University and the San Francisco C.G. Jung Institute.
As one of the pioneers in expressive arts therapy, I am a cofounder of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association and a MCEP and CEU provider. My work as an expressive arts therapist stems from my own deep and abiding passion for the arts, especially visual art and indigenous and ethnic dance forms, in particular West African and Afro-Cuban Dance.
