As an art therapist and counselor, my style of work is to focus on strengths, empowerment, coping skills, and problem solving. I am trained in a diversity of therapeutic methodologies, and my primary focus is to individualize my approach for each client. I have a specialty in trauma informed practice, and I have worked with a wide range of populations, including at-risk adolescents, children, homelessness, families, adults, trauma survivors, and active duty military. I have also worked in a diversity of cultures, including East, South, and West Africa, India, Eastern Europe, Cherokee, and Appalachia.

As a therapist, I see my role as a nonjudgemental ally and advocate. As an art therapist, I believe that artistic expression bypasses the limitations of language and opens a door to self discovery. I understand that not all people are comfortable with art, so I do not force it in my sessions, but I do always have art materials by my side.

I think it is essential to choose your therapist carefully. A therapist's role is to be a safe place non judgmental place for their client, and it's imperative that you find a therapist where you feel comfortable and supported. I offer 20 min consultations to learn more.
