For 30 years I've used drama therapy, music and art for personal healing and social change IN PERSON or ONLINE, and I specialize in ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). Through dialogue, gesture, image, rhythm, collage, diagrams, or enactments, we'll find ways to foster awareness, acceptance and action, to improve the WORLD you live in. I've worked with people in east Africa, Spain, Romania and Virginia. I'll help you grow the soul force needed to love even the shyest, shadowy-est elements of your personality.

I absolutely love my therapist! She’s the first one I have ever had that offers her opinions and ways I can help myself feel better about me! She has given me hope that maybe I can be me again and not my depression.
