Art is a regular part of my therapy practice.
Battling with mental health issues can leave you feeling drained and unsure where to turn. I work with children and adults that struggle with depression, anxiety, poor self-esteem, ADHD, and interpersonal issues providing encouragement and assist clients in the change of their cognitive perspectives. I encourage them in art/play and/or activities that foster positive coping skills. Whether clients are struggling with emotional or behavioral issues, my goal is to help them improve self-regulation.

Art Therapy makes it possible to express what is difficult, and sometimes impossible, to communicate with words.
Some of our most difficult times are also our greatest opportunities for growth and healing. It can be challenging and rewarding to make changes in your life and in your relationships. I aim to create an empathetic, trusting environment and relationship where you can feel safe to discover yourself and the areas that need healing. The goal is to move through these issues while building on your strengths to achieve a greater sense of well-being, feel empowered, develop resiliency, and live a positive, fulfilling life.

I use experiential, art, and play therapy, along with parental participation, to help children express themselves and make sense of their own unique worlds.
My approach to therapy involves focusing on the family unit, meeting each individual family member where they’re at while treating them as an important part of the therapeutic process. I do this by treating each family member equally and with compassion. I often get calls from parents asking me to help their child and my response is always the same… “Let's work together to help your kiddo.” Studies show that when parents are involved, kids recover from trauma significantly faster.

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.
