Sometimes there are thoughts, memories and moods that are causing us distress. Often, when we try to express these to others, we are left feeling more confused about what we are feeling or misunderstood afterward. Sometimes words fail us and we cannot find the right way to express ourselves and then we find ourselves repeating the same cycles. I have found in my work that when words fail, art can help us bridge that language dead-end. I am trained as an Art Therapist. I believe that art is innately human and can provide a safe space to initiate growth and change in individuals.

I have been working with youth and families for over 20 years. I believe each client is unique and deserves a tailored approach to treatment. My style is direct, compassionate and creative, allowing me to connect with clients that others have found difficult to reach. I often draw upon alternative interventions (equine therapy, recreation, sand tray, music, writing, and art) to reach clients resistant to more traditional forms of therapy. I wrote "Wild at Heart: Adolescents, Horses & Other Kindred Spirits" as a means for offering a helpful perspective and effective strategies for parents dealing with the challenging teen years.
