To best meet these needs, I use play therapy, sandtray therapy, and art to help children and teens work through social, emotional, and developmental issues so they may uncover the capacity for healing already within them.
I specialize in counseling children, teens, and families who are experiencing emotional, relational, and behavioral challenges. I have unique, youth-focused experience working with children who struggle with anxiety, depression, fear, self-esteem, family separation, and behavioral issues. I believe it is important to honor your family's values, experience, and the internal experience of your child in order to help him/her work through difficult life stages, develop positive coping strategies, and restore harmony in your family.

Harmony Arts Counseling is a mobile/ in-home art therapy practice for caregivers and people living with medical conditions. This includes ages 5 and up and any medical condition you can think of. Most therapists have little to no knowledge of the medical field or the symptoms you may be experiencing; and virtually none of them have enough flexibility to meet in-person outside their office. However, being both a nurse and an art therapist, helping people cope emotionally with a physical ailment is my specialty. Also, I believe the ability to physically make it to an office should not determine if a person can receive therapy.

I use art therapy and talk therapy modalities collaboratively with teen and adult clients.
Hi there, I'm so glad you're here looking for support. Experiencing difficult feelings and thoughts can be extremely isolating. You might feel stuck, maybe you've tried to express yourself but don’t have the words. Trauma or loss may have occurred or you may not know why you feel this way. Your new normal might include issues in your relationships, self-destructive behaviors, depression, anxiety, or loss of hope. I empathetically support clients in finding growth during times of heightened pain. Together we can build a connection to whatever lies beneath the surface, fostering understanding, acceptance, resilience, and relief.

Art Therapy

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
