I love working with kids and their parents! Loud kids, active kids, mad kids, disruptive kids, depressed or anxious kids, unhappy teenagers with failing grades, school discipline issues or drug/alcohol problems. Whatever the problem, there is usually a fair amount of pain associated with it for everyone in the family. I provide a safe, nurturing environment for kids and their parents to get help.

As an art therapist, I recognize how creativity can more accurately depict a person's inner world. Color, shape and line can help bring meaning to experiences that may be difficult to verbalize for people of any age, experiencing a wide variety of mental health concerns. Harnessing your creativity in therapy can help redirect energy in a productive way and the art making process provides a visual of your progress and serves as a testament to how much you've grown. As an art therapist and a counselor I seek to offer a place of peace and refuge where clients can begin to heal, grow and develop their voice.

Ever since the pandemic has started, you just can't seem to get your eating under control. It was hard enough to try to manage your food and weight when life was "normal". But nothing is normal anymore. There's a constant hum of anxiety in the background. The days are beginning to blend together, and feelings of isolation and depression are starting to creep in. You find yourself turning to food for comfort...or restricting your intake to help you feel you have control over some aspect of your life. You just can't seem to stop, and it's beginning to scare you. You begin to wonder what will happen to your body during the pandemic.

I believe art is a language everyone once spoke fluently- an innate ability we all possess. As children, we use visual imagery as a way to understand and navigate our surroundings and this serves as our personal connection to the world. My long relationship to visual art and intimacy with various media informs the way I guide you toward your own personal uncovering and self-exploration. Art is the central force of our work together and we continue to remain open and curious about what story it may reveal.

The mind has a funny way of keeping us emotionally safe when we experience pain and hurt in our lives. At times we may do things that seem appropriate and true to what we feel, but only later do we often realize that our actions have not only hurt ourselves but also the ones we love. Oftentimes, have you felt that you just are going through the motions of your life and aren't able to have meaningful connections with those around you, but are unsure of how to change.

Everyone feels anxious in certain situations. Anxiety motivates us to prepare for important events and protects us when we are in harm's way. However, anxiety becomes problematic when it is out of proportion to the situation in a way that interferes with a child's ability to learn, maintain friendships, and have fun. Affecting approximately one in eight children, anxiety disorders are the most frequently occurring behavioral health disorders. Though anxiety disorders are among the most treatable behavioral health disorders, only about one-third of those suffering from anxiety receive treatment.

To learn and grow, children require a tapestry of love, safety, and challenge. When the challenges youth face exceed the amount of resources available, therapy can be helpful. Private, goal oriented, engaging and fun activities can motivate youth to participate in a process they might otherwise avoid. In my practice, I help children address anger, depression, trauma, school related difficulties, divorce, and adjustment issues. With over 20 years of clinical expertise, I understand that children's therapy is most effective when the process is safe and interesting. In my practice I help youth and families embrace needed change by using their strengths to solve problems.
