As a Board Certified Art Therapist, specialties include grief, trauma, distress, anxiety, dementia, addiction, disabilities and spiritual growth with all ages and been primarily working with adults. I am grounded in a person centered model and integrate experiential therapy and traditional practices. Art Therapy utilizes a creative process to reach your goals to live a more fulfilling life, there is no artistic skill required. Whether you have had a traumatic experience, feeling lost, needing to access more creativity and inspiration or are experiencing a bump along your journey you are welcomed to this space for healing and growth.

My research has been published in the peer reviewed Journal of the American Art Therapy Association working with adults living with Cancer as quantitative research within four different art therapy modalities. I have given presentations and led workshops and retreats nationally and locally some include the American Art Therapy Association and Leading Age.

The studio space here is influenced by nature to bring comfort and peace as we find healing components within nature. At times you may even be greeted by a little four legged friend, Peanut. I Light LLC offers a variety of programs besides individual sessions from open studio, art therapy integrated with yoga, workshops, and more accessible on the website.
