My role as an art therapist is to help you feel seen and to guide YOU towards a deeper connection with yourself. Art is a way to get to know yourself, to explore your inner world, your longings, desires, patterns that you can’t seem to shake, pain, gratitude, joy, etc! I will serve as guide for you to express what is inside, working at your pace, in a way that feels safe. The goals of art therapy are not to make everything beautiful or to render ANYTHING in perfect detail or technique—but to see and experience what’s there and (sometimes) to transform the material.

One of my favorite quotes to live by, is "Sometimes we are tested not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths." Seeking therapy should NEVER be viewed as a weakness, but rather an opportunity to develop new strengths. My belief is that the therapeutic experience should be authentic, warm, and supportive. I encourage my clients to see the benefit of developing inner strength when seeking to develop new and positive change. I specialize in children, adolescents and adults, as well as families experiencing various life difficulties that may be preventing them from realizing the best version of themselves.

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.
