Let's Connect (315) 284-8150
I specialize in helping adults strengthen and utilize their inner resilience to manage feelings of anxiety, depression, stress, creative blocks, and internal criticism. I am a licensed art therapist and counselor who uses a relational strength-based approach. I incorporate a variety of clinical approaches including: art therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mind & body techniques. For clients who are interested in exploring alternative means of expression, I utilize art therapy interventions. No prior experience with art making is necessary to benefit or experience self-growth through one's creativity.
Art therapy can be especially helpful when clients are exploring more painful issues, such a trauma. It can also be beneficial for exploring life transitions, relationships, and overcoming “blocks” to creativity, as it enables clients to see difficulties from a fresh perspective.
I see every client as an individual with a unique set of wants and needs. I strive to work with clients to help them to define their goals so they can better achieve them. I offer a space filled with empathy, authenticity, humor, and warmth to help clients feel safe and supported. Sessions will be tailored to and respectful of one’s level of comfort.
