About

You do not need to be an artist to benefit from art therapy! Art therapy is the process of discovering and expressing yourself creatively through a variety of mediums. I work with your feelings and beliefs about your current state and support you in creating a way to maximize your daily functioning. Art therapy is appropriate for all ages, genders, and a broad range of concerns, including: connecting to the self; identity; life transitions; relational, school, or career difficulties; attention/focus; goal setting and achievement; stressful or worrisome feelings or behavioral patterns; and coping with grief and loss.
For older children, adolescents, and adults who are comfortable engaging online, the therapeutic art-making experience can contribute to well-being through emotional expression and release, building confidence and relational skills, connecting with joy and purpose, discovering new insights, and simply enjoying the tactile creative process of making art!
I believe that each person has the capacity to become their authentic self and find meaning through creative expression in a judgment-free, welcoming environment. I approach each person’s unique reality with curiosity and respect. I invite all ages, cultures, identities, sizes, and abilities to join me on a creative journey built on trust and acceptance.
