I offer a creative approach to the exploration of emotional, behavioral, relational, and family issues. I use a combination of creative approaches to assist with expression of thoughts and feelings including visual arts, creative writing, and play. Concerns related to self-esteem, decision making, behavior, adjustment, anger, loss, and anxiety can be explored in a safe and creative process that allows individuals to work at a comfortable pace. I also work with clients who wish to explore relationships and life changes. My goal is to offer a comfortable, casual, creative space in which to develop skills and move forward.

Art Therapy is a specialized field that utilizes the creative process to explore emotions, behaviors, relationships and experiences. Rooted in traditional approaches and theories of psychotherapy, Art Therapy encourages engagement in the creative process to achieve greater insight into one's thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Art making is especially effective in working with children, teens and even families. The use of art making adds a dimension of communication and expression that is not offered in other forms of psychotherapy. I offer a casual and comfortable space, where youth and adults can comfortably address concerns.
