The focus of my work is to help my patients access strengths within themselves to meet their full potential, to live joyful and meaningful lives, to be strong in the face of trying circumstances, to make a positive contribution to the world, and to give and receive love. I use expressive modalities, such as the use of miniatures in both wet and dry sand, clay art therapy, art therapy with a variety of other materials, inter-modal expressive therapy integrating movement, art, writing, and using the voice, and play therapy for children.

Within my practice the Gardiner location provides the broadest range of creative options including "Work at the Clay Field" for trauma healing.

My diverse educational and occupational experiences have prepared me for this broad and inclusive way of working. I am a Board Certified Art Therapist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Certified Psychoanalyst. I am also a potter and clay artist and continue to be engaged in my own creative work.

Time will be available for art making, movement, journaling, sharing, and responding. Individual sessions will be scheduled monthly or more frequently as needed, to further the group work and gain a deeper understanding of your inner process.
