About

“I’m fine” is the one of most common lies we hear. It's ok not to be ok. We are often shamed for being broken instead of asked how we fell apart. For sixteen years I suffered from an eating disorder that ultimately inspired my studies to help others who felt anxious, depressed, and insecure. Trauma is a fact of life but it does not have to be a life sentence. Humans are very resilient. Artwork is just like our ever-evolving journey; we are always learning, growing, and surprised by life. My focus is primarily client-centered; however, I use an eclectic approach to meet the needs of my clients.
I am here to hold a safe space and explore the art process with you: a unique vessel for expression where words can fall short. Difficult feelings may be contained and expressed within the artwork using symbols as natural metaphors for experiences. My speciality is children, adolescents, victims of trauma, and individuals struggling with life adjustments.
During our work together you may tell your story and share your images which I hope will take away some of the power of the wound. Anyone willing can benefit. No artistic talent is necessary, nor do you have to participate in art-making if you do not prefer it. I also bring my emotional support dog, Tophy, who oftentimes ends up on clients laps.
