As an Art Therapist and Counselor I can integrate art as a unique reflective process to truly connect with yourself.
When life gets dark, it is hard to see the light. All it takes is one step to begin to find your way again. At the core of my practice is support, trust, and the inherent worthiness of each individual. I walk beside you offering my encouragement, support and knowledge on your path to healing, connection and wellness. Though I work with many of life’s difficulties my focus is generally in working with adults who have trouble with stress, anxiety, fear, rejection, the feeling of "not enough", depression, sadness, life transitions, self-esteem, understanding and being understood.

My approach is first to give time and room for me to learn about you. I do this by understanding you as a unique individual, learning about your culture, life roles, beliefs, values, passions and priorities. I then join you to approach your concerns through those worldviews as the foundation. I use an eclectic approach utilizing therapies such as art therapy , CBT, Rational emotive behavioral therapy & Motivational Interviewing. I also enjoy working with clients who desire to incorporate a Christian worldview into their sessions.

Sessions will include verbal processing and/or art therapy for a total wellness approach.
Reaching out for help can be an overwhelming process that requires you to be courageous and vulnerable. When you are feeling sad, disconnected, hopeless, and uncomfortable in your own skin, the obstacles you face may seem hard to overcome. You have now taken the first step towards wellness and it is no longer out of your reach. I am glad you are here, especially if you may be feeling stressed and trapped in a world that just does not understand.

This is why I often incorporate the use of art with the knowledge of how the brain works, to unlock our subconscious when words escape us.
"I understand." Probably the most untrue thing anyone can say. I am not you, I have not lived your life, felt your feelings, or thought your thoughts. Which means I can't fully understand what you have gone or are going through. What I can do, is appreciate your struggle and help you navigate and sort through it all, to find why we think the way we think.

Art Therapy

How does art therapy work?

The process of making art allows people to express themselves. Art-making can take many forms, such as painting, collage, or sculpting. The therapist asks questions that the work elicits, such as how the person felt while creating their piece, or if any memories surfaced that they can discuss. The therapist will then work with the patient to process their experience, understand themselves better, and work toward change.

Does art therapy help with trauma?

Art therapy can be a valuable treatment option for those suffering from trauma. Traumatic experiences such as combat, rape, or childhood abuse can be so painful that articulating them can be too scary or painful; creating art allows people to express themselves without words, and tell their story in a different way. The physical nature of creating art can also help people feel rooted in the body, which may benefit those who feel disconnected from their body in the aftermath of trauma.

How long does art therapy last?

The duration of art therapy varies, but a common length for treatment is 10 to 15 weekly sessions. Some people may see improvement in just a few weeks, while others may choose to remain in therapy longer term. Patients should periodically discuss their goals with their therapist to make sure the two are aligned on process and progress.

What are the limitations of art therapy?

Art therapy is helpful for many people, but a limitation is that it doesn’t have as robust an evidence base as other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. The evidence on art therapy is mixed; some research demonstrates its benefits, while other research suggests that it has little impact on patients.
