I am an early childhood specialist and have many hours of training in art therapy with children, adolescents, and adults.
I enjoy working with individuals, families, and couples the same. My passion is helping young children because I feel they deserve a voice and are so often not given one. However, I also thoroughly enjoy working with adults, particularly those struggling with anxiety and/or depression and helping them work their way out of that struggle because both issues are so debilitating. Empowering clients is what I enjoy most about my chosen profession.

I offer cognitive behavioral therapy (also known as CBT/ talk therapy) and art therapy .
You put off therapy to the point of feeling stressed and exhausted. You are sick of the piles of junk taking over the house, have zero time for yourself, and feel too tired to cook. To others, it looks like you have it all together, but inside you feel like a failure. One more task on the already overflowing to-do list is going to make you lose your mind! Your life is stressful, but it doesn't have to be. You are seeking a change! My name is Jennifer and I help people significantly reduce and manage their stress. Stress does not have to take over your life!

As an Art Therapist and Mental Health Counselor, I specialize in helping others explore and process their thoughts and feelings through the creativity and art making.
Life can be full of light, and sometimes equally as much dark. Managing in the dark can be challenging, scary, lonely, and uncertain. Exploring, learning, and developing the tools necessary to bring a little light of your own into that darkness can be so important as you venture down the path. With time, commitment, and some creativity, there is light at then end of the tunnel.

I believe it is important to express your feelings and thoughts through art .
Are you feeling set-off by everything, easily triggered, and frustrated with everyone? Maybe it’s the opposite - you feel lonely, sad, and no one loves you. You’re tired of fighting, and you’re exhausted by all the critical comments. You want to feel supported, cared for, and accepted by your friends and family. You need others to understand “It’s not the same” and “I am not you!” You need someone to HEAR you!

Is your child or teen struggling with transitions? Does everything end up in a power struggle? Are they frequently anxious and angry? Maybe you have tried consequences, but those consequences are not working and setting firmer limits ends in more stress. Helping them regulate big emotions may be difficult for you and lead to frustration and confusion. I can support your child or teen in learning to regulate their emotions.

Trauma does not have to be a life sentence. I work with women and teens to find healing, especially trauma, abuse and neglect victims on their healing journeys. Patients often tell me that they appreciate my approach to therapy because they don't have to tell their story in order to heal from trauma. My therapy practice incorporates leading edge holistic techniques such as Somatic Experiencing Therapy that can reduce your symptoms in a safe, supported and natural way. We'll start with what's going on in the moment and how to gain control over your body and thoughts. I look forward to teaching you tools to take your life back.

Love and Connection in life should not be confusing. But there is always a risk when it comes to getting those two critical human relational needs. Many times relationships feel like a dance, and feeling lost with no road map? It can often turn into division or discomfort, but does it always have to be that way? Emotionally Focused Therapy is a proven, evidence-based method that enhances couples' ability to gain Love and Connection through safety and security. And I would love to be that resource, coach, advocate to help teams sustain longevity in their relationship without leading to isolation or further hurt.

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.
