Art therapy engages the mind, body, and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal expression alone. At Indigo Art Therapy Studio, our board certified art therapists engage clients in the creative process and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to address specific and measurable goals. I enjoy working with clients to help access and process emotions held within the body, fostering self-regulation through art and yoga. I will partner with you and actively collaborate with your team to design a personalized treatment plan for you or your child. We help individuals of all ages, from toddler to adult.

Our clients are often considered highly sensitive, anxious, gifted or creative; however art skills are not required to benefit from art therapy. Some challenges we have experience in helping with include: emotional dysregulation, high anxiety, sensory dysregulation, low self-esteem, feelings of depression, and caregiver fatigue.

Indigo Art Therapy Studio is an inclusive, sensory-friendly space where diverse abilities, communication styles, gender identities, pronouns, sexual orientations, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and religions are respected. We care deeply about the individuals and families we serve and are continuously working towards making our services accessible to all.
