As an LPC and licensed art therapist, I work with clients to help address challenges that arise from a number of life events.
Growth and healing is fostered when we feel accepted and heard. I show up for my clients with an inclusive, culturally responsive, and nonjudgmental approach to sessions. I meet you with a supportive and open attitude as you explore your authentic self and grow into your potential. We can get there by learning and then practicing new coping techniques that can improve your quality of life while working to understand the patterns that may have led you to seek support. Together, we can develop a new path with less suffering and a better understanding of yourself and your limits.

Art , play, and gardening therapy use a variety of techniques.
Life is challenging. So many ebbs and flows. I recognize that and would love to help you on your journey. We can all use a little support from time to time. Relationships can be difficult to manage. Setting (and keeping) boundaries at home, at work, or within relationships is hard work. If you or your child are looking for support with issues such as anxiety, depression, bullying, domestic violence, abuse or trauma, I'd love to help. I use creative therapy techniques in-person and via tele-health to support you or your child.

I offer a mix of primarily art therapy , EMDR therapy and DBT / CBT - individualized depending on the client's case and goals.
I have a diverse background in the evidence-based treatment of persons with trauma, eating disorders, co-occurring disorders, anxiety, mood disorders, LGBTQIA+ challenges and gender dysphoria. For clients with PTSD and other trauma, common goals include symptom reduction, coping, exploration and healing. With eating disorders, my practice is most appropriate for clients who have attended a higher level of care (e.g. Intensive Outpatient, Residential, PHP) and are looking to confront issues underlying the eating disorder. Clients seeking gender affirming care will find support with expression, transition, relationships and more.

I have had invaluable experiences working with kids and teens through play, art , and talk therapy based in CBT, person/child-centered treatment, and trauma-informed care.
To the families, parents, and caregivers who are looking for someone for their child, teen, or loved one to talk to: I'm glad you're here. I'm glad you're here taking strides towards helping your kiddo find peace, pursue growth, and gain support while working through challenges life may have thrown at them. Every person, no matter their age, deserves to feel whole, safe, and heard while they are on their journey. In both my professional and personal experience, therapy is a profound process that can help guide people to find these things within themselves.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Registered / Board Certified Art Therapist working with adults, adolescents, and children. My approach to therapy begins with forming a safe, therapeutic relationship that allows you to explore life transitions, emotional pain, or other symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, addiction, or eating disorders. We will move beyond symptom management and help you to identify and develop understanding of the deeper meaning of the presenting symptoms. Often, the symptoms are external manifestations of conflicts and core beliefs rooted in the inner world or attempts to avoid the pain of past and current life experiences.

The art in therapy deepens the therapeutic work by engaging the whole self.
Through a focus on insight and empowerment, I help clients heal wounds incurred against their bodies, minds and/or spirit allowing them to feel stronger, more accepting, more whole, more clear, and more motivated for change. I have a special interest in issues such as trauma/PTSD, self-esteem, identity, perfectionism, loss, anger, depression and life transitions. My style is empathic and supportive, but also truthful and authentic. When appropriate I will utilize my sense of humor, celebrate small steps, and seek out the simple joys that can guide us through dark times.

I believe that everyone has the power within themselves to enact change in their lives! As a play therapist in-training I often utilize play, art , and sand-based activities to help individuals decrease negative behaviors and recognize their full potential.
Do you have an adolescent or teenager who is struggling with things such as anxiety, depression, or anger? Are you, yourself, struggling to cope with the pressures of everyday life? Let me help you! Life can be HARD and it is even harder when you feel like you are facing all your battles alone. Through counseling I have helped children, teens, and young adults process traumatic events, overcome various stressors, and learn new methods of coping.

With kids, I use play therapy and art to help them express themselves and learn to better regulate their emotions and behaviors.
My approach to therapy stems from the belief that feeling truly seen and understood is a basic human need. I aim to provide a safe and reflective space where you can bring your whole self without fear of judgment. We will work together in a collaborative process to understand your unique experiences and how they've impacted you, figure out where you may be stuck, and help you take back the reins. I work with people, not diagnoses, and take a strengths-based approach to help individuals of all ages gain self-awareness, curiosity, inspiration and hope.

I believe we all have the capacity to improve our lives and understand ourselves more fully. It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. Appreciating and respecting that courage, my work is to help my clients attain their goals. We do this together as a team. Being stuck personally or professionally is poignantly uncomfortable. Together we can move thru and beyond this state and get to the other side. To address your individuality I utilize a wide array of interventions: mindfulness-based talk therapy, somatic techniques, art therapy , music therapy.

Did you know that couples on average wait 6 years before seeking help for a troubled marriage. Has this time of sheltering in place been chaotic, stressful and disappointing where you and your spouse were wanting renewal, connection and joy in the togetherness. There is hope whether the problem is trust, emotional distance, or escalating conflict. I start with a strengths based focus using research based Gottman method interventions that work.

Art Therapy
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centers, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled Saint Louis art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
