About

Worried about your child or a special young kiddo you love? Have they always been active, funny, smart, and talkative but you’re starting to see things change at home or school? Thinking about how they may process new or upcoming changes in the family? Just want to make sure they're okay & maintain their wellbeing? Run out of options & need some new tools? My goal is to inspire & instill hope. My mission is helping children look up & into their future with less worry & fear & more confidence & happiness.
I'm an art therapist who works with young children of divorce/separation & abuse/domestic violence facing fear of abandonment, anger, depression, & anxiety. My goal is to be warm and creative, compassionately listen and, at times, even utilize humor to aid in building rapport and trust with my clients as a solid foundation to begin work from.
The decision to begin therapy is a brave one. This journey can feel both overwhelming & empowering. Therapy helps us better understand ourselves & our relationships, so we can thrive & lead healthier & more resilient lives. Let me help you ease into the artful process of healing. Together we will work in the best interest of your child.
