“I paint because I need to. If I didn’t paint, I would die”. Paul Klee
Since high school, I have known that I wanted to integrate the arts and therapy in my life work. As an artist and therapist, I have evolved my work into an integrated model of expressive arts, Energy work, Reiki and healing.
I have a Masters in Expressive Arts Therapy and a certificate in Social Ecology. I am accredited as a Playback Theatre Trainer and am a Registered Expressive Arts therapist. I have been in private practice since 2000.
Prior to this I worked as a postpartum care Doula and in hospice care. For a number of years I was an at home mom, at times home schooling my children. I taught at Burlington College for ten years, and have been a teacher, at Lesley University and internationally, since 2003. I am a wife, stepparent, grandmother and professional artist specializing in printmaking.
I am a practicing Buddhist, a Jew raised in the shadows of the Holocaust, and have had mild Cerebral Palsy since birth. These experiences have deeply shaped my perspective as well as my work.
