Life changes and transitions can be difficult to experience, especially alone. As a Registered and Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC), as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I will meet you where you are and sit with you in what you are experiencing. Together we can define your goals, discover your strengths, explore meaning and any possible resolutions.
I have 10+ years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I am also a certified child life specialist (CCLS) and have worked in a hospital setting helping children and families cope with a diagnosis, hospitalization and medical procedures.
I am a Registered and Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC), as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), so I often use art making to engage the mind, body and spirit to enhance the therapeutic process. My practice offers an art studio space, a room for sensory/gross motor needs, family and group room, and traditional individual treatment areas.
