Let's work as a team. Worried about your child? Just need some new tools? You've made the first courageous step in finding support. Whether current struggles have always been challenging or are new, I am here for you. Individuals, even children, have a unique and innate ability to gain insight and grow, but I believe there is an art to dealing with these struggles and I will help by providing a supportive environment, at times humorous, and allowing you and your child to feel hopeful again.

I work with young children of divorce/separation, abuse/domestic violence, and trauma that face fear of abandonment, anger, depression, and anxiety/perfectionism. I have also worked with special needs children and have run domestic violence education, parenting, emotional management, life skills, as well as children's art therapy groups.

As an Art Therapist, I can utilize art as a means of expression and healing. I also utilize cognitive-behavioral and narrative therapy tools to help externalize struggles and better understand attachment styles. I'm bilingual in Armenian (both dialects) and also provide in-home services in the Burbank area.
