During this difficult time, we can truly benefit from whatever way we can manage to CONNECT with others and ourselves!! You don't have to be an artist to benefit from and enjoy creative art therapy ! It's not our aim to make you the next Picasso or produce a gallery show when we're done.
Therapy to me is a gift we give ourselves; an invaluable tool that enables us to enhance and make sense of our lives. It can help us find comfort and clarity during times of uncertainty. I believe in human beings' innate ability to create, know and love our lives and ourselves. Together my clients and I forge a relationship outside the context of their family or loved ones for the purpose of support, exploration and self-understanding. Our vehicle is creativity that helps us stay open to possibility in the face of even the most challenging of circumstances.

You woke up and you've decided that enough is enough, and you're ready to seek help. Today is the day. You may still be feeling nervous, or ready to lean in and get started, or both. People often find it difficult to take these first steps, and find a helpful support essential in the process as they address depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief, relationship difficulties, difficulties resulting from trauma, low self esteem, and general feelings of being lost. I'm here to walk with you as we work on and explore the areas you want to address in the verbal or creative ways that suit you.

With concrete skills, acceptance, growth and meaning can begin to heal the past. By understanding the painful narratives we sometimes unconsciously reinforce, we can start to let go of the hurt related to addiction, depression and anxiety.

I specialize in online art and trauma therapy with adults who want to connect their healing journey to breaking cycles of oppression in PA & NJ.
I’m glad you’re here. You’ve been labeled too sensitive, too much. You’re struggling with your self-worth, overriding your needs, and avoiding your feelings. Rage. Sadness. Fear. Confusion. Grief. What the fuck do you do with these? Through working together using creativity, curiosity, and connection, you’ll better understand who you are, why, and who you want to be. You’ll understand how white supremacy and oppressive systems affect your relationships, identity, and mood. You’ll make intentional changes that bring more joy, ease, and meaning for yourself, your loved ones, and the collective. You don't need to do it alone.

Along with training in marriage and family therapy, I am a clinical art therapist, and certified in EMDR.
I have always believed that we are the masters of our destiny, and couldn't do the work I do without trusting that everyone is capable of change. One of the most exciting aspects of therapy is embracing that hope for yourself, your child, or family. Throughout my 30 years of experience, I have developed therapeutic approaches to empower clients and help them manage and overcome feelings of depression and anxiety, conflicted relationships, unhealthy behaviors and other stressors. As a family therapist, I work closely with families when treating children and adolescents, and offer guidance on parenting issues.

Making the decision to begin or restart therapy is a courageous one. Our society has taught us that we must be independent, so asking for support is not always easy. Maybe it gives you anxiety just imagining how you would squeeze one more appointment into your already packed schedule. Less than optimal experiences in therapy might have you tired of searching and worried about who you'll be able to trust. Or maybe you're waiting for the 'right time' to begin. Whatever has brought you to this point right now though, has taken a lot of strength. I'd love to join you on your path and work together from here.

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.
