I am honored to join Hancock Center for Creative Arts Therapy as the Clinical Program Director. I enjoy working in a creative and collaborative ways with people and organizations to support insight and to foster positive change.

I received my Master’s in Psychotherapy par les Arts from Concordia University in Montreal Quebec Canada. During my graduate work I received a research assistantship with The Center for Arts in Human Development; and completed clinical internships at Maimonides Hospital and Batshaw Family Services. I enjoy research and was a co-researcher with the Biography Laboratory Project; a multi-year action research project investigating postmodern approaches in Narrative Therapy. In additional to clinical work with Montreal Children’s Hospital and in private practice, I was a trainer for Concordia University’s Summer Institute in Community Development. I hold certifications in cross-cultural Mental Health practices from McGill University’s Transcultural Psychiatry. Since moving to Madison, I have worked in a State Certified Mental Health Clinic, as Health and Wellness Trainer to Wisconsin State Agencies and co-founder of a collective psychotherapist practice.
