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.

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.

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.

Creativity. It's one of our most precious birthrights. Yet when we suffer, we often forget that there is a solution to every problem. All problems in living can be thought of as a failure of the imagination, an inability to envision solutions, garner resources, or initiate movement. As a therapist I have honed the skill of generating creative solutions through traditional talk therapies and with expressive art. Through the utilization of visual arts, imagery, music, dreamwork, and writing, I can teach you how to use your own creativity as a tool for self-discovery, expression, and most importantly, integration.

Clients who are uncomfortable in most environments and seem to always be on edge. These clients often face social, professional, and family struggles because they are reactive, defensive, and sometimes impulsive in both language and actions. People who struggle to be able to motivate themselves into action. These qualities can lead to feeling misunderstood and alienated. I have successfully treated clients that fit this profile.
