As an art therapist, I recognize how creativity can more accurately depict a person's inner world. Color, shape and line can help bring meaning to experiences that may be difficult to verbalize for people of any age, experiencing a wide variety of mental health concerns. Harnessing your creativity in therapy can help redirect energy in a productive way and the art making process provides a visual of your progress and serves as a testament to how much you've grown. As an art therapist and a counselor I seek to offer a place of peace and refuge where clients can begin to heal, grow and develop their voice.

To learn and grow, children require a tapestry of love, safety, and challenge. When the challenges youth face exceed the amount of resources available, therapy can be helpful. Private, goal oriented, engaging and fun activities can motivate youth to participate in a process they might otherwise avoid. In my practice, I help children address anger, depression, trauma, school related difficulties, divorce, and adjustment issues. With over 20 years of clinical expertise, I understand that children's therapy is most effective when the process is safe and interesting. In my practice I help youth and families embrace needed change by using their strengths to solve problems.
