-12 year old girl who engaged in short-term therapy to decrease anxiety
"I was apprehensive about seeking out therapy. Imagining the task of summarizing my experiences to a stranger was daunting to say the least. I also didn't know how to do it. Lily immediately made me feel at ease and worked out a pace and structure that worked for me. Throughout our time she nurtured a safe and productive space for me that more allowed me to work through my own self-progress rather than taking charge on it herself. I'm so happy with my first therapy experience and the tools it has provided me for my future self care."

Lily was able to help me leave behind the tension from my hectic day and ease me into a relaxed, more present state of mind. It was a perfect way to end my day." –Group participant in late 30s addressing stress

Through innovative art therapy and movement groups, Lily helped mobilize stuck emotions and inspire hope in people for whom traditional verbal techniques had failed. Her work with patients was inspiring and transformative. Lily's empathy, natural attunement to people, and non-judgmental approach make her an effective therapist for people from all walks of life."
-Tanya Azarani, M.D., Psychiatry PLLC
"I hired Lily as a clinical supervisor to assist me in my private practice journey. Lily was extremely helpful in guiding me through clinical decisions to best provide for my clients. I felt I was able to be open and really explore my therapeutic work in a non judgmental space with her. Private practice work can feel daunting at times when it is just you making the decisions, so it was truly beneficial for me to have someone as competent and experienced as Lily helping me out. She not only guided me through the process, but assisted me in coming to my own clinical conclusions so I could deepen my therapeutic skills. I look forward to having Lily as a collaborator in the future."
