In art -making you can move away from everyday expectations & habitual responses into a new state of living your possibility & freedom. This felt sense of change - body, mind, soul - can profoundly impact your ability to reimagine present difficulties, learn new coping skills, ignite joy and expand your play range.

I primarily use play-based and expressive art therapies to nurture self-awareness, resilience, and mastery over challenges. Children rely a great deal on those around them to navigate the challenges they face.

The relationship with your child offers an opportunity for effective intervention.

What ever you may be going through, you deserve to been heard and seen, to find a place to reflect and gain perspective. Art therapy is a way of being curious, empathetic, aware of ourselves and the world we live in. Art therapy is an invitation. It can be both a place of validation and a place to challenge the ways we make sense of the world. Engaging in art in such a way is an invitation to grow and learn to be with what is.
